Battleground

The film focuses on the camaraderie as well as the branches between your troops as they ready for the major offensive. Told in a taut narrative, the men of the 101st, led by Van Johnson, wait out winter in the Ardennes forest from what is the final important offensive of World War II, to confront the German army. The men are demoralized and trapped, without a expectation of aid from the Allies.
