another culture's retrospective on WWII, but what should have been a riveting bunch of set pieces in the forest, to me, became a run of rather ridiculous occurrences.

Waterfall: what happened to the other half of that duo? Did he just figure his friend disappeared for no reason?

Firefights: a dozen heavily armed elite paratroopers can't defeat two sub machine guns and several single-loading rifles? Not too elite. And what's with elite troops marching in lockstep a few paces apart into fire? One or two grenades, only, in the elite group? And after his "girls" get slaughtered, sarge is going to march those 3 Nazis back, across that marsh? Don't think so!

Up to that, I was okay with the story, characterizations, etc. At some point, credibility has to enter into a war film, however.

Might I be so bold as to suggest a viewing of the original 1972 film?, posted on November 5, 2020 at 17:50:33

Altho the mini series does have better looking females and actually didn't suck, the Oscar nominated original is a solid level above it (despite the dubious decision by Amazon to carry a dubbed version of part II. Perhaps there was no other option?). Altho the small unit taking down the larger unit criticism has merit on the surface, allegedly this is a faithful adaptation of a true novella, so, there's that :)
