"When Trumpets Fade"

A self-serving GI obtains a position of leadership after he is found to be the only survivor of his company while fighting in the blood-soaked soil of the Hürtgen Forest.  Can he keep his new squad alive or will they just become more fodder for the meat grinder?  This is a great flick that tells of the horror and futility of war from those who suffer from it the most.  Check out the trailer below and see what you think.

A must for any WWII aficionado,

  1. I always liked this movie. Dwight Yoakum does a great job in this movie...I hated his character. The flamethrower scene was rough and something I can't recall ever seeing in a US WW2. Makes Nick Nolte look wussy abusing Staros for not attacking in the Thin Red Line. Overall, a pretty good movie.
