i find this very touching, so many died on both sides. the clash of two very different cultures.

Nicely done and a good pick, Daniel. I remember this from Republic in 1949. John Wayne got an Oscar nominatiuon as Sgt. John Striker. Tucker was quite good.I remember his scene:" Come on, you guys! ammo and fresh Jo!" And then he looks around and nobody there. THe ending is sad and poiignant and still has some power today. Good pick! I love A Walk In The Sun myself. Regards Gerard.

Good movie. Did you see how John Wayne beat up Forrest Tucker? Your very few words describes the flick in huge detail.
