FYI, this just came out this week.

As far as I can tell it's not yet available on amazon.com. The distributor is a small one (Excel Entertainment), so it may be a while before it gets sold in other than LDS-type retail stores.
Deseret Book currently has it in stock for $19.98 (pre-tax/shipping costs).

I ordered a copy and should have it next week sometime. Will give my (admittedly less meticulous than others on this forum) thoughts after I get it.
For those interested, it's a pretty good WWII film despite it's small, independent budget. It has a spiritual/religious theme at times, but it keeps it fairly generic and non-denominational (but I guess the title reveals that enough, no?).
It's on Instant Viewing on Netflix as well, for those who are curious.

This IS available on Amazon.com both individually at $21.95 and as part of a 2-disc box set with "Days Of Glory" for $27.95...I just ordered the 2-disc set!!!

For the record, I believe those are UK releases. I've read that they are Region free, but I cannot confirm that personally.

I double-checked on Amazon.com...their specifications confirm that both releases are region-free.

Also, according to the review for the UK version on blu-ray.com the "Making of" doc is PAL, so that may be reason for some to get the US disc if their TVs can't receive a PAL signal. (EDIT: same bonus is indeed on the US BD according to the Deseret Book listing, plus a "Sneak Peak" for the upcoming sequel).
The review: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Saints-and-Soldiers-Blu-ray/2530/#Review

I suspect the film's A/V will be identical between US & UK, so that review for the UK bodes well.
