Welcome to my website dedicated to all the U.S soldiers that fought in any war
involving the United States of America during our 230+ years as an independent
nation. I hope you liked my intro page showing actual photographs or paintings
of wars past and present. Though, most of the movies within are produced by
Hollywood, some of the movies like: Gettysburg, Midway, Tora! Tora! Tora!,
Saving Private Ryan and Hamburger Hill truly bring to our living rooms the
horror and history of war. You also have the special cult classics like:
Kelly's Heroes, The Guns of Navarone, Platoon and even now, Patriot which
are very entertaining to watch and stick to certain guidelines to what war
could have been like. I also have included a very special page dedicated to
those POW's in Burma and Thailand during the Japanese conquest and British
and Australian surrender during the days of World War II. These POW's were
made famous in the classic movie "The Bridge On The River Kwai". A show
called "Time Machine: True Story of the Bridge on the River Kwai" which
aired on the History Channel tells what really happened to those unfortunate
soldiers and civilians captured by the Japanese army. I welcome any comments,
real photos or info dealing with what really happened during any war during
the the past two centuries. Especially photos dealing with POW camps and prisoners.
I separated the movies into 4 categories: World War II, Korea and Vietnam,
All Other Wars and Documentaries and True Stories. Hopefully, down the road,
my library on "True Stories" can be extended to include images and photos
sent to me by you. Thank you for your visit, comments and please share my
site with other interested soldiers or persons who are interested in war
or movies involving war....
