i was reading about the new expansion, and it being in italy it reminded me of this song from the wall. the movie that is, not the album. cant wait for the ex. pack.

"When The Tigers Broke Free"

It was just before dawn One miserable morning in black 'forty four. When the forward commander Was told to sit tight When he asked that his men be withdrawn. And the Generals gave thanks As the other ranks held back The enemy tanks for a while. And the Anzio bridgehead Was held for the price Of a few hundred ordinary lives.

And old King George Sent Mother a note When he heard that father was gone. It was, I recall, In the form of a scroll, With gold leaf and all. And I found it one day In a drawer of old photographs, hidden away. And my eyes still grow damp to remember His Majesty signed With his own rubber stamp.

It was dark all around. There was frost in the ground When the tigers broke free. And no one survived From the Royal Fusiliers Company C. They were all left behind, Most of them dead, The rest of them dying. And that's how the High Command Took my daddy from me.

love the floyd. Saw them in London whilst travelling Europe, the night they filmed PULSE. So you can see the concert I was at.

`Twas a near religious experience. Bloody brilliant.

Great post cat

I loved 'The Wall.' Great movie. But I thought that song was about an incident that took place near Normandy?

Originally posted by Xenomorph I loved 'The Wall.' Great movie. But I thought that song was about an incident that took place near Normandy?

During the early morning hours of 22 January 1944, troops of the Fifth Army swarmed ashore on a fifteen-mile stretch of ITALIAN beach near the prewar resort towns of Anzio and Nettuno. The landings were carried out so flawlessly and German resistance was so light that British and American units gained their first day's objectives by noon, moving three to four miles inland by nightfall. The ease of the landing and the swift advance were noted by one paratrooper of the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82d Airborne Division, who recalled that D-day at Anzio was sunny and warm, making it very hard to believe that a war was going on and that he was in the middle of it. --

got this from a neat website all about anzio.

Forward they cried From the rear, and the front ranks died. The General sat and the lines on the map moved from side to side - R. Waters
