These two war films tell different stories about the same battle near the end of WWII. Both seem to be quite accurate, but quite different films. I think I liked Letters better . . . the story is more dramatic. The Americans were expecting to go home after the battle . . . the Japanese were not. I am growing to really like Eastwood’s directing, but not so much his acting.
Some intensely graphic and realistic violence. Amazing drama and plot. Good historical lessons and perspective.
