Post Battle Of Britain there were two campaigns of the second world war that were almost exclusively British led and British fought . One was the North African campaign and the other was the Burma campaign , and unlike the inaccurate American flag waver OBJECTIVE BURMA the production team of MERRIL`S MARAUDERS have taken the time and effort to point out the British contribution of the campaign . A British patrol is spotted ” A five hundred mile hike and the eighteeneth Japanese imperial army are waiting for them , I`m glad I ain`t in that British Army – Amen to that ” and later General Stilwell points out ” That the British have been fighting alone here for three years ” , so a big thank you to Sam Fuller and co for pointing out a few truths that American didn`t win the war single handed . If only Spielberg , Hanks and Ambrose had done the same with BAND OF BROTHERS
solid war movie
It’s 1942 and the Axis powers are at their zenith. Allied forces are retreading in Burma. Gen. Frank D. Merrill directs three thousand American soldiers through the jungle to attack the Japanese forces in Walawbum. After gaining a difficult victory, they’re ordered to do an impossible march over mountains and attack.
Like the epic march, this is also a bit of a slough. The characters aren’t really the star of this movie. It’s the march. It has the elements but it doesn’t have the tension. The jungle battle scenes have lots of extras running around but they lack the thrills of great action directing. This is a solid war movie and the final numbers are shocking. It may be worthwhile to keep a running tally on that number.
