Battle Cry

I remember reading Leon Uris Battle Cry as a teenager.  I have never seen the movie until today.  Great flick, and reminds me that in any battle having the USMC on my flank is a real plus. Semper Fi.

One Response to Battle Cry

    It’s Uris’ first novel and clearly autobiographical. I like the book better than the film–but maybe that is because I have never felt Van Heflin carries off his part compared to the colonel in the book.
