 Veterans Today Review

Review excerpts: Mike Dorsey was a very, very good listener.  In listening attentively to a very unique group of WW II veterans, filmmaker Dorsey discovered a secret that needed sharing.  The result is an exceptionally compassionate documentary called “Lost Airmen of Buchenwald.”  The film is spectacular.

The somewhat staid and predictable description of “documentary” does not do Dorsey’s “Lost Airmen” a lick of justice.

To say Dorsey, his team and the airmen themselves got to the heart of the matter is insufficient…they got to its soul.  And that soul is the utter cruelty of mankind upon itself; the courage of individuals; and, ultimately, mankind’s escape from the darkness back into the light.

Another Kiwi Review–Timaru Herald

What an amazing story it was, and despite being an American-made documentary, it was tasteful and understated…By the time it finished, Mrs B and I had a few tears rolling down our cheeks too, and she is not the sort of woman to do that very often.
