WWII was 60 years ago - my father's war. It now fades into the pages of history. This is one of the best WWII movies. Historically accurate, well acted. James Caan,Michael Caine,Sean Connery,Elliott Gould,Gene Hackman,Anthony Hopkins,Ryan O'Neal,Laurence Olivier,Robert Redford,Maximilian Schell and Liv Ullmann star. No extraodinary gore, but very loud soundtrack.
