****Devil Dogs: Hero Marines of WWI****
For my Freeper family....
If you are moved by 'Heroes'....real Heroes.... and would like to spend one hour totally blown away by what happened at Belleau Wood France in June of 1918...you will not find a better, more beautiful done, more moving tribute than this documentary. I highly recommend it. Semper Fi
Challenge you to stay dry eyed.
What an incredibly touching and beautiful story and such a fascinating tale of this mans lifes work to bring to present day the stories and artifacts long lost in the forest on the battlefield back to present day descendants. This one man created a modern link back 100 years in order to bring those swallowed up by time, space, and circumstance simply because he has such a passion for it. Part historian, part treasure hunter, part Marine fanboy; this unassuming Frenchman manages to pull at your heart and make you weep because of his dedication and quiet resolve to honor people he never knew and give their humanity back to family members who never thought that they would have such an opportunity. For anyone interested in military history, or WWI, or enjoy seeing proof of humanity and kindness in our vast world, I cannot recommend this movie more highly! 2 people found this helpful
"I stumbled on this movie searching for something completely different. Was curious. Watched the first few minutes. And then couldn't stop. Cinematography is awesome, the story is amazing, and simply an honor to watch."
""This French gentlemen and now honorary Marine, made a film that truly showed what The Marines In the battle of Belleau Wood went through. Plus he informed descendants about thier Marine ancestor, and even returned a dog tag to a Great Nephew. Very touching film. Great historical account. JESUS bless this French gentleman, and all U.S. Marines. JESUS is SEMPER Fi.""
Semper Fi Sir.
