If you haven't seen the 2014 movie Fury, staring Brad Pitt, this is a spoiler alert. This is my review of the movie, and I would like to hear what anyone thinks about this movie. I enjoyed it for the realistic action sequences, because I'm a big fan of WW2 history and technology. But that movie could have been so much better and a better ending. I have seen some Youtubes criticizing Fury for accuracy. The battle with the Tiger 1 tank could have been better. First error is there were 4 Sherman tanks traveling down a road spaced CLOSE together, only 20 feet apart! That was an easy target for ambush, and there were NO infantry to accompany them. The tanks should have been spaced out 100 yards between each of the tanks and a number of infantry following each tank. The Germans had plenty of time to set up ambushes, and the Shermans should have known. The Tiger 1 could fire one shot every 6 seconds, so it could have easily destroyed two Shermans, or more, before they could react. The 3 surviving Shermans correctly turned to face the enemy with their frontal armor, while they retreated by backing away from the Tiger. As they backed away they should have spread out more. They could have blasted the small trees blocking their retreat with HP rounds. I think there were 2 Shermans with high velocity cannons, Fury and one other. They should have started firing armor piercing rounds at the Tiger as soon as they located it. Then smoke shells every 10 seconds to stay hidden from the Tiger that was only 1/2 mile away. Their MISSION was to protect a crossroads from an impending German counterattack, not screw around with a Tiger on their way. They should have radioed the location of the Tiger to HQ, maybe a dive bomber could destroy it later with a 500 lb bomb. They should have left the Tiger alone, and proceeded with their mission with only 2 or 3 surviving tanks. But since they decided to stay and fight the Tiger, the surviving Shermans should have retreated out of range of the Tiger, and spread out to surround the Tiger. The Tiger did something very STUPID, it came out of concealment and exposed itself to the Shermans. So the Shermans should have taken advantage of seeing their enemy. With high explosive rounds and smoke shells, the other Shermans distract the Tiger while Fury snuck up closer for some good, close-in, shots with armor-piercing rounds. Then they continue with their mission. Here is a Youtube of "Fury battle with Tiger": Tank Battle - Tiger 1 Vs Sherman Tanks - Fury - YouTube The movie could have also omitted the 15 minutes wasted in the German women's apartment. That did nothing to help the movie. The ending was not a smart plan by Wardaddy. They should have planned to SURVIVE the encounter. All they needed to do was inflict enough damage on the enemy so they were not a threat to the allied supply lines. All they needed to do was play dead until the German battalion was about 20 yards away from Fury, then open up with all machine guns and 76 mm. Here are 3 Youtubes of the final battle scene: FURY 2014: Ending full Fight scene (1/3) - YouTube FURY 2014: Ending full Fight scene (2/3) - YouTube FURY 2014: Ending full Fight scene (3/3) - YouTube In preparation for their ambush, it would have been more convincing, and saved time, to just empty a number of gas cans about 10 feet in front of Fury. Then light the fire and it will give the illusion to the approaching enemy that the tank was burning. Also important the cannon is facing AWAY from the approaching column, so as not to appear as any threat. The tank needs to look VERY dead so the Germans are unprepared for a battle and can be taken by surprise. When the German column was about 20 yards away, the guy hiding behind the turret (who will man the 50 cal) starts throwing a series of 10 grenades into the column to signal the start of the ambush, and all machine guns open up. The bow 30 cal should just fired continuously until the ammo runs out and the barrel gets very hot. At the same time, the turret swings into position and fires AP rounds to disable the armored personnel carriers and any other trucks. While the other 2 machine guns fire short bursts until the bow gunner was done reloading. Then the other 30 cal fires continuously while the others fire short bursts. The idea was to keep up continuous machine gun fire for about 15 minutes, using several cans of ammo for each machine gun. Just don't allow the gun barrels to get too hot for 15 minutes. One 30 cal prevents flanking around the right and the other prevents flanking around the left. The 50 cal chews up everything in the middle and the 76mm cannon bounces HP rounds with a short delay fuse so the rounds explode over the enemy. After 15 minutes of this punishment, at least 50 enemy should be dead and another 150 seriously injured. THAT should end the threat to allied supply lines. The surviving SS would have to care for their wounded. Then the tank fires smoke shells to signal time to escape. Each crew throws a few smoke grenades around the front of the tank, and then they also throw a dozen more grenades deep into the column so the enemy keeps their heads down. Then each crew grabs their side arm and all their ammo, and a canteen of water, and they run like hell to the safety of the tree line! Do you have a better plan?
