Saints and Soldiers Trilogy

First came Saints and Soldiers a movie about a group of WWII foot soldiers who were captured and then escaped before the Malmedy Massacre.

Fighting for their lives "with few weapons, and no food this small band of soldier come across a British intelligence officer who has valuable information" he needs to deliver to the Allied forces.

Though they are already in a dangerous situation they struggle "to be both good men AND good soldiers."

Based on a true story this film wonderfully portrays the war efforts of Corporal Nathan Greer and his friend Gordon Gunderson.


Then we were inspired by the actual events that are depicted in Saints and Solders: Airborne Creed.

This action-packed film portrays the story of three WWII U.S. Army paratroopers who are "cut off behind enemy lines."

As "their commitment to the Airborne Creed urges them forward--it proves that a few good men can change war."

So powerfully told this story will touch your heart.


And on AUGUST 15th we will be privileged to view
Saints and Soldiers: The Void

Germany, May 1945, the twilight of World War II. On a final mission deep in the Harz mountains, a U.S. tank crew discovers a platoon of Germans, including three infamous Panzer tanks, preparing to ambush allied supply trucks.

Before the war, private Jesse Owens was a product of segregation and racial discrimination, forced by law to ride in the back of the bus and disenfranchised from the political process. As the Germans bear down on the Americans, Owens fights the Axis powers for a freedom he and his fellow African American soldiers have never felt.

With a deadly game of cat and mouse quickly unfolding, Owens and his predominantly white tank crew find themselves out-gunned and out-manned by the German Panzer tanks. Several in Owens's crew are reluctant to put their faith in a black tank driver despite their dire circumstances. With tension and fear beginning to manifest, Owens knows they must put aside their differences to stop the enemy from achieving their deadly plan. Knowing that a victory over the Nazis means a victory for racial justice, Owens and his men find a way to work together to save hundreds of lives in a desperate battle against the greatest odds they have ever faced.
