Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: indarwinsshadow: Kind of boring to be honest. Not to take anything away from the soldiers, but watching that was like watching golf. 9 minutes of waiting, 1 minute of something happening. And what's with the elevator music?

Congrats, you've just found out war isn't like Hollywood.  It's a lot of movement and sitting around and then high holy terror and then death and then movement and sitting around again.

I imagine it is..and was. Want to read about bad luck? My grandfather. 38 years old. To old to enlist. Lies about his age, joins the Princess Pat's light infantry. Stuck at base Borden, near Barrie, Ontario in the winter of '44. Coldest winter in years. Shipped off to England, and then to a beach at Normandy. July 17th, 1944. Next day, they push inwards, encountering light resistance until they make their way to Caen. Sticks his head up from a pile of rubble when told to engage a pocket of resistance and was promptly shot in half by a tank round at around 11:00 a.m. July 18th. 1944. One frickin day in. That my friend. Is our legacy. Someday, our (my families) ship will come in. And we'll be at the airport.

I saw some footage of the Dieppe raid. Heart breaking. Canadians stuck in landing craft, being blown to bits at point blank range. Incredibly sad.

The Brits fought to the last Canadian.
