...were sustained during some of the most intensive close quarters fighting of WWII. In terms of scale there hasn't been much to match it since.
I'm sure you are right in terms of statistics. I did noticed many extras sporting 'minor' wounds but it was the experience of seeing a buddy die or get seriously injured that seared the most lasting impression and that is what the film-makers have recorded.
What I also noticed was that the medics made almost no attempt at resuscitation - is it that techniques had yet to be developed or just that there were other more pressing priorities to attend to such as those still living?
All the best,
