Synopsis:
December 1944. A civilian victim of the Battle of Bastogne scrounges through garbage to find a scrap of food. "I don't even see those things", a war-numbed GI says. "I want to remember them!" his buddy snaps. Bastogne veteran Robert Pirosh remembers with his Oscar-winning screenplay for 'Battleground', a gripping tale of 101st Airbourne troops resisting Hitler's fierce, final counter-offensive. Directed by William A. Wellman, the superb cast includes James Whitmore as a bantam rooster of a sarge and Van Johnson as a wisecracking PFC.
