They Fought Alone


Hold on to your hats!

They Fought Alone is being made into a movie and it's starring Brad Pitt! The true story is so incredible that I almost doubt there will be any Hollywood-style fancibrication added(nevertheless, if you haven't read the book yet, you might want to hold off until after seeing the movie, just in case).

If you don't know what I'm talking about, just google Wendell Fertig.

Sounds interesting. I hope you're right, though....Just the facts, ma'am.

Re: They Fought Alone


Thank's Lucius - though I am sure that the book upon which "IG" was loosely based had the word "alone" in the title - wish I could remember which UK newspaper I read the article in .....
