That scene is a brilliant piece of film-making. It's a shame that almost everything in that film is wrong. I wish people who made films claiming to be covering real events in the real world would make them accurately or just make the fantasy film they want to make and not pass it off as anything real.

Angilion there .. I could have been like you and said " go look it up" like you did to another poster.. but since I wasn't the one who brought it up.. here is a link :D
I spent two posts giving a detailed example. That is not "go look it up". I did not write "go look it up" at all. A radical change in opinion is not going to happen from reading a few posts by me on IAB. That has to come from finding out for yourself, which is why I suggested they did so if they were interested.
Thank you. 10 is a lot more plausible than "lots".
By chance, I found a figure for the total number of Americans who joined the British military in WW2 before the USA entered the war - 244. The source (Jeremy Clarkson) is very unreliable and he may well have just made it up, so that doesn`t help much. It sounds plausible, though.
