Field of Honor (Dutch: Het veld van eer) is a 1986 Dutch/South Korean war film set during the Korean war, directed by Kim Dae-hie and Hans Scheepmaker.

Plot summary[edit]

After an attack by Chinese troops a Dutch sergeant (whose troops committed atrocities against the local population) finds himself alone in the field. He meets a young Korean woman who tries to save her little brother who is shell shocked. This changes the sergeant's outlook on the war.



The film got a negative review in the Dutch communist newspaper De Waarheid.[1]
