Review by John Delia, Sr.

If you are a fan of war films or even someone who would like to know some of the history behind the war efforts, the recent released The Bloody Hundredth should be on your list. The documentary honors the real life heroes of WWII including the 100th Bomb Group that risked their lives and lost many in the effort to eradicate fierce foes that invaded the USA, Europe, parts of Africa and Asia. Just one hour long, it’s well worth the time to remind us about our patriots.

The stories narrated by Tom Hanks Include many real-life airmen featuring “Masters of the Air” John Egan, Gale Cleven, Harry Crosby, Robert “Rosie” Rosenthal, Frank Murphy, Alexander Jefferson, Richard Macon, as well as veterans John “Lucky” Luckadoo, Robert Wolf, and many others. From the shock of Pearl Harbor to the joy of VE Day these dedicated hero’s never flinched when it came to facing the enemies head on.

Teaming with actual video footage of air fights, bombing strikes and heroic deeds, its one film you shouldn’t miss. The Bloody Hundredth has not been rated by the MPAA, but contains war violence and disturbing Images. It’s available for home viewing using the Apple TV+ streaming platform.
