This fact-based war drama begins on Oct. 2, 1918, when an American battalion of more than 500 men becomes trapped behind enemy lines in the Argonne Forest during the closing weeks of World War I. Surrounded by German troops and without water, food or reserve ammunition, they endure constant assaults and bombardment as they struggle to survive. This film will educate viewers on the U.S. involvement in World War I and its impact on U.S. society. Eldred "Wink" Prince, CCU professor of history, leads a discussion after the screening to provide an historical context for the film.
