Mrs. Sal and I just finished watching the movie The Great Raid. For those of you who have not seen it, I highly recommend a rental. The movie depicts the rescue of American POWs in a Japanese internment camp in the Philippines by an Army Ranger battalion during World War II. The movie gives a glimpse of the war in the Pacific – a part of the Second World War not often depicted by Hollywood. This portrayal of the American Soldier in the face of the cruel reality of war and a determined enemy aptly displays their ingenuity, bravery, and most of all their heroism. Inspired by a true story, The Great Raid is sure not to disappoint.
