      Section 8 Clause 8

      Translated from wiki

      "Article 8" refers to retirement from the military when deemed mentally unfit for service. It is also used to refer to any military member who has been discharged from the military or who behaves justly.

      The term comes from Title 8 of World War II-era U.S. Army Regulation 615-360, which stipulated that those deemed unfit for military service would be dismissed. in the 1950s. Under Title 8, any military member who is found to be gay is generally...

      On the battlefield, the least important thing is motivation

      There are also good war movies worth recommending!

      The most profound is the dialogue between Manning and the first company commander. The people above really understand war? They also had to walk around and act like...

      Brutal War and Survival Humanity

      A shocking war movie, the cruel description of war is inexhaustible, and the instinct to survive seems so humble and shameful. There are no natural heroes in war, only forced to survive. This should be regarded as a blockbuster criticizing realism. Life is so fragile and helpless, whether it is an enemy or a superior, it will kill you at any time. A truth of war stripped of its sacred veneer turns out to be so sinful and horrific. There is another puzzle: what is the eighth regulation that...

      war without heroes

          TG's active duty soldiers may not agree, but for us viewers, war is something else entirely - for example, in the war movies we are familiar with, there are spears and guns on one side, warriors screaming, and blue Celtic pounces on calm. On the other side, artillery fire roared, the forest was raining at night, and the big boy with the M-16 collapsed in the foxhole and neighed desperately until he lost his voice. In that world, technological progress always seemed to be accompanied by a...

      faded charge

         After the Allied forces landed in Normandy, France on June 6, 1944, the Germans retreated. Although the Allied morale was high, they thought that the end of the war was just around the corner, but the later Operation Market Garden was frustrated, and because the supply line was too long, the Allied forces attacked. The speed and kinetic energy of the U.S. Army weakened, especially for the U.S. Army under Patton. After October, the war came to a stalemate. The U.S. Army confronted the...

      I haven't seen a translation in a long time. I watched a short clip of this film on the movie channel earlier, called "Before the Dawn of Victory", and another translation called "Battle of Horgen Forest". The battle was intense, but overall it was a good...

      The emotional core of the story and the structure of the echoes should have been powerful, but the distortions and roughness of the little details here and there, all over the place, slowly wear off the potential impact. But in any case, to be able to deconstruct the heroic image of America's "greatest generation" from such an angle does indeed reflect a great moral courage. As John Keegan said: "There's no such thing as 'getting used to fighting' at all... Brave because he's been told it has...

      This is a movie about war that I watched many years ago and have always been impressed. I want to say that the essence of war is the result of the highest organized form of violence. Wherever it goes, it not only destroys every living life, but also destroys the most precious truth, goodness and beauty in human nature. The inevitable result of the war, no doubt the war deepens and infinitely expands the ultimate fear in everyone's heart instead of epic heroism! ! ! Oppose war, defend peace! ! !...

      The character setting in the film is very special. Everyone who appears, including the protagonist, is afraid of death, but the protagonist is thinking about how to leave alive. The state of the battlefield is full of danger through rhythmic editing. The tragic effect, but directly to tell the death, this is very real. It is worth mentioning that the echo of the beginning and the end is very interesting, life and death,...
