People who complain about movies with anti-war messages really make me scratch my head. Anyone who actually enjoyed participating
in these events were pretty much psychos. IMHO you should never miss a chance to point out to the body politic that war is hell and cruelty
Right on all accounts, sir
There is this rule of thumb that always work... if you see a war veteran that loves talking about his war, be sure of this: he saw no action, was in the rear, etc. etc.
Those who really were at the front will hardly talk about their war experiences...
This should tell you something. Namely, it's traumatic...
No wait, there is a well known exception: Adolf Hitler. Yes, they tried to prove he was during the war 5 or 6 kilometers behind the front (he was a messenger) and suffered little but apparently that was not a safe job at all.
And it is well known, Hitler's favourite topic was er... his experiences during WW1.
But eh, he was a psycho, so he does not count
