Good movie on Netflix

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.

  1. Yes! Saw it a couple of years ago. Apparently, it is a true story, and the end was a shock for those who remember the official UN story.
    And the fight in those Irish soldiers was truly outstanding!
    5 stars for military history movie.
