Tanks in World War II Films

Fury, a new World War II film, will be released this fall, presenting the perspective of United States tank crews fighting in Germany toward the end of the war in Europe. The film focuses on a Sherman tank named Fury and its crew, members of the famous U.S. Third Armored Division.

The film stars Brad Pitt and apparently portrays the war as brutal and gritty rather than the “Good War” of nostalgia.

The New York Times offers an early review of the film.

Northern Illinois University students of HIST 390 History and Film: War in Film will be interested in this review and the forthcoming film.

I will update this post once I am able to see the film.
