Days of Glory R2 SE in June

Metrodome have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Days of Glory (Special Edition) on 2nd June 2008 priced at £19.99. 1943. They had never set foot on French soil, but because France was at war, four young Algerian men, Said, Abdelkader, Messaoud and Yassir, enlisted in the French army along with 130,000 other 'indigenous soldiers', to liberate the 'fatherland' from the Nazi enemy.
