As I watched this week's film I found it to be a very entertaining movie especially since I have seen the most recent version with Matthew McConaughey. World War II is one of my favorite parts in history, so as a viewer it kept me intrigued as to how WWII was actually played out during the time the film was being made. It gave me another point of view as well, instead of just the present day depiction, especially with they way the U.S. armed forces were segregated. As we were told in class that the the only real colored war hero that came from WWII was Doris "Dorie" Miller, who was only a mess attendant at the time of the Pearl Harbor attack, but later in his life earned the Navy Cross for his talent of shooting a Japanese plane down. We found that in this movie there was a similar soldier, who was African American and depicted the same way as Dorie was. The comparison with Dories life was when they needed water they sent him down to go get it, kind of like a messman in the kitchen...doing the dirty work. Another comparison to Dories life was how he ran after the German prisoner and not only killed him, but risked his life to serve his country, that in which Dorie did as well when manning the gun that he had no experience with and shooting a Japanese plane down. To me this movie depicted the racial makeup of the World War II.
