(See my other WWII related posts) – I came across the movie “36 Hours of Hell” a while back on YouTube. I watched it last night and to say I was disappointed is an understatement. I was surprised that it had earned a 5/10 on IMDB. Honestly, I would not have been surprised if it had been rated a 3. The synopsis per IMDB:
A ragtag bunch of US marines is sent into the Pacific Island of Rabaul to clear any remaining Japanese forces after the heavy bombing. They meet fierce resistance.
The movie was made in Itlay, but all dialog is in English. If you still want to watch it, the movie was still available on YouTube as indicated below at the time of this post.
If you are interested in the WWII era of history, you may find these two pages of mine of interest.
The “World War II Sources” page is a collection of more than 310 links to museums, memorials, websites, Facebook pages, Twitter feeds and other sources with information on the World War II era in history.
The “World War II Timeline” page shows events leading up to WWII, as well as during the war. Events are broken down into the Pacific and European Theaters by date.
