Fly Over: ‘Saints and Soldiers’, and ‘Windtalkers’

Posted November 8, 2013 by Grace Lee and Jayson Burns

On DVD: ‘Saints and Soldiers’ Many World War II movies have been produced since the actual war. This makes sense, of course, when one realizes how important that time was for the world as well as the individual.
