A compelling chronicle of war that captures both the action on the front
lines and the strategy behind the scenes. In their own words, the U.S.
soldiers and combat officers in the field recount the punishing physical and
psychological conditions under which they fought-as well as the horror that
still haunts their memories. "Both the enemy and the weather could kill
you," says Private Bart Hagerman of the 17th Airborne in the film, "and the
two of them together was a pretty deadly combination."
