faded charge

After the Allied forces landed in Normandy, France on June 6, 1944, the Germans retreated. Although the Allied morale was high, they thought that the end of the war was just around the corner, but the later Operation Market Garden was frustrated, and because the supply line was too long, the Allied forces attacked. The speed and kinetic energy of the U.S. Army weakened, especially for the U.S. Army under Patton. After October, the war came to a stalemate. The U.S. Army confronted the German Army in the forest area in front of the Siegfried Line. The fighting continued until the Battle of the Bulge broke out in December. Just ended, this film is to describe the tragic attack and defense between the US military and the German army during this period...
Personally, I think this film is more brilliant and profound than the Battle of Bastogne in "Band of Brothers". The commander blindly issued an order to charge for the record, and a soldier survived but was suspected. Their eyes clearly said: You should have died long ago. The battlefield of the officers is always only on the map, and the soldiers in their eyes are the calculated cannon fodder - how many people should die here! A soldier who does not want to be a general is not a good soldier? But no one's record is better than him and a few of his men: the flamethrower burned the 88-gun position, the time bomb destroyed a large number of enemy artillery munitions, and the rocket launcher blasted two tanks. Under his leadership, even the spectacled recruits marched forward bravely, and even the medics carried bazooka... The next morning, their comrades in arms would successfully take another position. They may not know what happened the night before. Nothing, but at least one less charge. And the soldier who didn't want to be a general, he really couldn't be a general. He was destined to die in a certain charge, not for justice, not for ideals, or even for the hot soup, but only because the official forced him. Anyway, it is a death, then die here.
