First off, aint american bashing - i ken some really ace yanks, however, what really gets on my nerve is how you can rarely get a decent WW film/game/etc that doesnt simply revolve around america. It really gets on my wick that, having came into both WW's in the later years nearly every represntation of the war revolves arround them.
Some of the best exaples - will get round to posting them when i can remember
- Movies based on British operations durring WWII, with all american casts etc, making it look like an american operation!!!!!

Meh, I agree. Its always focused on the US.

But thats why the Call of Duty WWII game series is so cool. You can play as the British, Americans, and Russians.

I say a blockbuster movie focusing on the British SAS in WWII would be just ace, although im not British I tend to regard the 22nd SF regiment as probably the best in the world. Can't forget TAVR I too.

"Who Dares Wins" very cool.

I agree with the OP about most ww2 films being American centred. U-571 was one that got it historically wrong (it was the Brits that captured the ENIGMA machine.) en.wikipedia.org...(film)#Historical_inaccuracies

I'm just waiting for a movie about the yanks beating Rommel in North Africa...

...or the Argies in 1982!!
