Product description

Product Description

In the winter of 1944, a group of American soldiers find themselves surrounded and outnumbered by Nazis at the strategic crossroads of Bastogne. Required to surrender by the Germans, the Americans reply in the negative. As the snow continues to fall, the men in the squad react to the situation in different ways. This film was nominated for six Oscars in 1949, including Best Picture, and won two, including one for Robert Pirosh's screenplay.

From Amazon.co.uk

Director William Wellman (The Big Heat) offered up this 1949 treatment of the Battle of the Bulge, which won Oscars for best screenplay and best cinematography. The film concentrates on the camaraderie and the divisions between the troops as they prepare for the big offensive. Told in a taut narrative, the men of the 101st, led by Van Johnson, wait out the winter in the Ardennes forest to confront the German army in what would be the last major offensive of World War II. The men are demoralised and trapped, with no hope of support from the Allies as they are forced to band together and defend their position. A classically assembled war drama that nevertheless manages to be both engrossing and entertaining, Battleground is a mainstay of the genre. --Robert Lane --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
