If Anyone Has Read...


...the book, can you let me know how accurate this was to the actual events (as reported)? I thought the movie was pretty good, but I'm always one for history and wish to know if the movie was close to the book / historical events.

Thanks!

Brother, you know that book was written by a dude who hasn't served, right?
It's historical fiction, at best.

I did not know! I admit I didn't do much research. Thanks for the heads up!

is this the occasion where they ended up hiding amongst the ice and painting the ships white or some such crazyness?
