WWII a war with purpose but what a waste of youth.

I saw it. mostly, because Jamie Bell is my favorite actor. I read the book because I knew he'd done the film. I hoped he would play Doc Bradley and almost didn't see the film when I found out he doesn't. I enjoyed him as Iggy, though.
Reading the book made me think of my own dad (a WWII vet). Like James Bradley's dad, he really never said much about the war (most of what I know about his army stint I heard from my mum) except for one humorous incident.
He and his troop were having their dinner outdoors somewhere when the men (except for my dad) noticed that ants had invaded the stew!
"Look at them!" the men were all saying, while my dad kept on eating, wondering what they were talking about. The original FEAR FACTOR!

what I realized from the book FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS and, now, from the ending of the film, is that my dad saw a lot of terrible things, including buddies dying in his arms.
Naturally, he preferred to recall a light and funny moment.
