Battleground (1949)

Directed by
William A. Wellman

William A Wellman's Oscar-winning WWII film stars Van Johnson, John Hordiak, Ricardo Montalban and James Whitmore as just some of a group of American soldiers who held out against an overwhelming German offensive during the Battle of the Bulge. Screenwriter Robert Pirosh had fought at Bastogne himself, and the film brilliantly captures the lurching unpredictability of war, the strained camaraderie of the troops and the horror of combat.
