    That part in Glory where they charge Fort Wagner and that haunting bell-like theme plays. My goodness what a film.

    I was just telling a friend about that scene. I was too young when I saw that film, 9 I believe, I had a huge interest in the Civil War. That scene wrecked me. Then we see them getting thrown into a mass grave. Brutal.

    Grasping for memories, searching for landmarks in fields once familiar

    He canít recognise now, the hedgerows are gone, the blackbirds have flown, silencing song

    This wasteland belongs to a murder of crows

    How are there more Das Boot fans than Glory? Seriously, this is one I would love to hear thoughts on. Glory is amazing.
