Bastogne veteran Robert Pirosh remembers with his Oscar®-winning* screenplay for Battleground, a gripping tale of 101st Airborne troops resisting Hitler's fierce, final counteroffensive. Directed by William A. Wellman (The Story of GI Joe), the superb cast includes James Whitmore as a bantam rooster of a sarge and Van Johnson as a wisecracking PFC (as in "Praying for Civilian"). Rugged and unsparing, Battleground - nominated for six Academy Awards® including Best Picture - makes sure we all remember.
