Guarino at the Movies
Joe Guarino reviews The Great Raid: . . .
I recommend the film highly. The event it portrays is described as the greatest rescue mission in American military history. Moreover, the depictions in the film serve as a reminder of the atrocities to which our men had been exposed; and this is particularly timely in view of the recent observance of the 60th anniversary of our victory against Japan, and the events leading up to it.
My dad served in the Pacific Theater during WWII, including a stint in the Philippines, and I hope to go see this movie with him.
