War Movies Worth a Damn: The East

‘The East’ Shows Why Indonesia’s War of Independence Is a Bridge Between WWII and Vietnam

 

Before you watch the movie it would do you good to familarize yourself with the History of this little known War, often called “The Dutch Vietnam”:

As an amateur military historian and writer, I really enjoyed the authentic “feel” of this movie.

Early Cold War Conflicts like this that show the basic tenets of Asymmetrical Warfare are really important for the armed citizen to study.
