Siege of Jadotville on Netflix.
I know the movie is a couple of years old but I finally got around to seeing it today.
It was well cast, well acted, and overall a very good movie, if you are a military history buff like me.
It portrays the Irish soldiers who were part of the UN Peace Keeping forces very well. It also demonstrates just how much of a piece of shit the United Nations really is.
It’s not an epic war movie, but has as very We Were Soldiers feel to it.
I highly recommend it, especially if you have an interest in the African brush wars (technically the Congo Crisis is not recognized as a brush war, but has all the hallmarks of one so should be grouped with them) or just want to see the United Nations come off looking shitty.
