Watched "Saints and Soldiers"....great flick
I think that turned out by the end of the movie to not have been the case, it was a rumor going around easy company about Spiers that helped toughen up his image as a leader.Dieter122 said:In Band of Brothers they showed the Americans gunning down the Germans in cold blood, that made my blood boil when I saw that, but its good they didnt portray it as being ok, or discount it.
possibly but I doubt it, seeing it came out on DVD not long ago.Dieter122 said:I saw Downfall on TV I think...cant remember though?
Well you see in the movie and the book that the E company guys all had different versions of the story and you never initially see it happen you only see their versions reenacted out in their minds (that's the seens you're talking about), then later after taking the small town in Ardennes, the Walberg brother talks to Spiers about it, and Spiers tells him, he never gave the men the true side of the story because it was probably better for them to have thought he killed them in cold blood. Watch the whole series again and read the book. :wink:Im pretty sure they showed the Americans gunning down the Germans in cold blood......remember the few Americans gave the Germans some smokes and then a minute later, that was the end for them?
yeah it was fun :mrgreen:Ah man, what id do for a REAL STG44.....
yep, I've heard/seen that as well I believe. No, this is no made for TV movie. The battle scenes are as good as those in Private Ryan or the like.Dieter122 said:I think what I saw on tv was "Hitler", the movie made for TV....seen so many Hitler programs on TV they all end up looking the same...thanks to History Channel...
They simply don't shoot them that often.What do people do for ammo for the STGs? I know theres LIMITED surplus available, like what you used when you borrowed it...but is there any commercially available STG ammo? Or any planned?
actually I think I can get it done. The camera I had came with software to install on your PC so that you can play the vid on the PC and capture it to digital, I just haven't had the time to sit down, read the manual and do it. :mrgreen:If you want the video converted over to digital, I can do that for you...just send me a copy of the tape and ill convert it, upload it, and send you a CD or DVD hard copy. PM me if your interested.
don't steal my future idea man.Dieter122 said:heres a good question, why doesnt anyone try to relpicate the STG, just as we see other clone rifles (m1 garands, m1 carbines,etc)? I know the cost would be high, but im sure a lot of people would be interested. im sure you heard of the semi auto FG42 rifle thats in the works....expensive as hell, but also cool as hell :twisted:
