Fury is a 2014 American war film directed by David Ayer. It stars Brad Pitt as Wardaddy, a tank commander who leads a five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines in Nazi Germany during World War II.

The film’s score was composed by Steven Price, who won the Academy Award for Best Original Score for his work on the film.

The film’s final theme song, “Norman”, is a particularly haunting and moving piece of music. It is played over the film’s final scenes, which show Wardaddy and his crew making their last stand against a German Tiger tank.

Both of my grandfathers passed away when I was young, so my defacto grandfather was actually my wife’s grandfather, who we called Pap. I got know this man very well, and I wrote an entire blog post about him when he passed away last summer.

Pap was a tank repair man and served at the end of WWII. He was one of a two man crew who would trail battle fields, and find tanks in need of repair. They would sleep underneath their truck at night, and take shelter under a tank if they were being shelled.

Interestingly, you wouldn’t sleep under a tank because they would slightly sink in the mud when it rained. Just enough to suffocate a sleeping soldier.

Norman is an excellent song for beginner and intermediate guitar players to improve the skill and dynamics. The main refrain is a collection of relatively easy chord shapes, played in quick succession. This is a riff that would benefit any guitar player’s skill set. The song’s short duration makes it doable for just about anyone.
