Dear JP III,
You forgot Gallipoli, ANZACs and Light Horsemen. The Australians have a real feel for WW 1 films.

It is a true story based on a group of Australian tunnellers in Flanders, with the officer in command being the central character (with some flashbacks to his time at home to help build up his background before he was sent to France.) Without giving too much away they end up getting sent to the sector overlooked by Hill 60 and it is down to them to look after the huge amount of explosives tunnelled under it - the end effects are fantastic. It does a great job of getting over how cramped and claustrophobic the conditions must of been.
I would give it 4 - and maybe even 5 - stars out of 5.

Dear BH,
Johnny got his gun-haven't seen yet.
Merry Christmas-Christmas Truce film?
All quiet on the western front 1930-Not bad, only Kat was kind of weak.
All quiet on the western front 1979-Not bad, Kat was a major upgrade-the rest a lateral move
The trench -haven't seen yet
Many wars ago-haven't seen yet
Son Osmanli Yandim Ali-haven't see yet-can you share a little about it?
Lawrence of Arabia-great film;did the subliminal advertising make you thirsty?
Strike Swiftly,

IMHO a family drama but not really a war movie.

What about these:

- Aces High (1976)
- Zeppelin (1971)
- Berge in Flammen (Mountains on Fire, 1931)
- The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, episodes 5 - 10

regards


Helmut

There was an Australian TV movie called "A Fortunate Life" based on the autobiography of the same name by Albert Facey. Most of the film was about his experience in World War I, specifically at Galipoli and his life afterwards.
