Battle Cry
 
Watched the classic the other day.

Just a good movie. Not your typical Marines in WWII movie.

One of my favorites.

I remember my father telling me, he was in the Marines st the time it came out, and he and his fellow Marines going to see it.

Stars Aldo Ray, who was a UDT Frogman in real life - before playing a Marine and Green Beret.

Along with Sterling Hayden, Silver Star recipient (Patrick O'Donnell's First SEALs devotes several pages to the WWII veteran and actor who later played Captain McCluskey in The Godfather).

Uris wrote many great books, my favorite being Trinity. The first time I read it was over a long weekend when I was in the USMC. I've read it 3 or 4 times since then.

I read that book when it was first published, would have been twelve or thirteen at the time, loved that book.

Yes, indeed! This book came very close to swaying me to opt for Parris Island instead of Ft. Benning.
