Not too bad
13 February 2017 | by magdalenabrylaSee all my reviews

Although there are many complaints about this movie it shows the drama and deceit of Poland by France and England who did not come to help. It shows that when you face surrender or fighting to the last man the choice is not easy. Even though there are no major scenes of battle it shows the drama of fighting without external help with lack of medical supplies and it shows that in the tragedy of the situation the soldiers did the best they could. God bless those men who died for POLAND. God bless their souls. Germany. We WILL NEVER forget!!! We will never forget what communists did to WW2 heroes after the war when too many of them had no pension and means to survive. Modern globalist propaganda is equally bad as German and Soviet one. Do not confuse patriotism and honor with being against other countries. Protect your countries and love them.
