I didn't particularly like Fury, but no question they went out of their way in the realism department.
I did like Fury. Not for the plot, which I thought was stupid, but because for the first time I had an inkling of what it must have been like for my Dad, who was a tank driver. I never found out anything from him, because he refused to talk about his experiences in Burma.

My favourite film is A Bridge Too Far. My least favourite is the recent Dunkirk movie. I would have walked out, except I was with my son, who had bought the tickets.

Who could make a war movie without mentioning the name of the enemy? What Spitfire pilot would ditch with the canopy closed!
