Well, let's see now. WWII. Americans good guys, Germans bad guys. Sounds

After seeing PRIVATE RYAN, it seemed to be no
different  than any of the more "simplistic" earlier
film you cited in your post.

The Americans were good guys, the Germans all
bad--the same black hat/white hat mentality of any
stock western or war film.
