    Right...but i think he has his outcome with his income

    Back to topic: Psycho, did you ever played the ( not so serious ) SPR Scenario?

    The advance is extraordinary difficult, because of three reasons. First of them, as always, is the high fighting spirit of the German soldier.Gen. Eisenhower in a letter to Gen. Marshall, July 1944

      Yeah, he was so good in real movies but maybe he needs the money so he is in these crappy action movies now.

      I remember someone mentioning an SPR scenario for ASL but I don't recall ever seeing it anywhere. I have thought about trying to work out one for the final fight from Kelly's Heroes before.

        I have it. It´s named " Solid Gold Real Estate " designed by Scott Faulk. I´m not sure, but i think it´s released online from the guys from View from the trenches or Coastal Fortress

          I have probably seen SPR three or four times...all on DVD. The first time I saw it, I had a hard time getting over the Omaha Beach scene. Since then, every time I watch it, I can't avoid tearing up when the modern day Ryan finds the Captain's grave. The scene at the War Department where they figure out that the four other brothers are dead and Masrshall reads that letter from President Lincoln also choked me up a bit.

          I don't see it as a specifically US patriotic movie; but I do see it as a patriotic movie in general. I have never worn the uniform or served in combat; but I have always read that ulitmately soldiers fight for one another. I think SPR captures that bond between soldiers in combat as well or better than any other war movie.

              "Das Boot" is one of the best German, if not the best, (anti)war-movie ever. It won some film prizes here in Germany, most of the young actors are well known today, even Jürgen Prochnow ( der Alte ) made his jump to Hollywood.
              Yup. I was also impressed to hear/read that all of the crew members except the Motors Chief did their own dubbing for the English-language version.

              Thanks, that's what I was hoping to hear -- and is an excellent assessment of a movie that leaves me drained and exhausted every time I see it.

                      You mean the other Bavaria? It's about 75 minutes at 140 kph (my official Autobahn speed), depending on how many darned Dutch camping trailers are on the road. Where the heck do they go, anyway? Do they just drive around Europe hauling trailers, or do they actually stop and sleep in them from time to time?

                          I've been in that situation!

                          Were you on A3 coming out of Austria? If so, you were only a few km from my house. Let me know next time you ride the "Tulip Highway" this far south. If you have time, I'll buy you lunch and show you Hohenfels.

                          You may have heard this already, but a friend of mine (a good Southern German from B-W) told the Dutch that if you fail the driving test three times in Germany they give you yellow license plates. I nearly fell out of my chair laughing but the Dutch weren't as amused.
