Hi K Wyer: I agree with your paper on the "selling", and the "audience" and anyone's right to write, publish and film, and I respect that.
I read the book and thought it was well written and had a good plot.
If one films an actual and historic event of this kind ,it should try to be faithful to the facts, so as not to rewrite history and extinguish the sacrifices those troops, black and white, made. Maybe someday in the future, someone will write me and my all-black unit out of our participation in the Korean War, the Pusan Perimeter breakout, "Operation Ripper",in 1951. This almost happened in March 2001, after I wrote an article for the Pentagram, ( a Fort Myer Military Paper)remembering our service in the Korean War, for the 50th Anniversary activities. A Marine Corps. information Officer tried to suggest that we did not participate in "Operation Ripper", and that we were not there! The Army editor corrected him and so did I. It should not be that easy to erase 5300 lives.
These are my concerns. Lloyd
