Major Whittles and Captain McCarty were the main characters in the fill m as well as the soldiers in the platoons. Whittles was played by Risky Scooter and Muster y was played by Phil McKee. In the movie the whole plot was based around the Lost Battalion on of World War l, which was cut off and surrounded by German forces in the Argonne Forest during the Argonne Offensive of 1918.The captain and major faced several struggled wit h his men in the platoon from starvation to no ammunition to very large amounts of casualties .
The men overcame everything that was put in their way. 2. In class we are discussing the World War so it went along perfectly with the movie. In the movie all the men in the 30th Regiment’s 77th Division, have been drafted FRR mom diverse ethnic, economic, and social groups from New York.All the men must learn to work together ND figure out each others strengths and weaknesses to help bring home a vi story.
3. Yes the movie was historically correct, some events under exaggerated but most of the film was spot on. Also, I like how it had to do more with the realities of combat like common, friendly fire, chain of command issues, water, food, ammo, and medical supplies. 4. I would rate this movie a 3. 5. I would recommend this movie to anyone! It was a great movie which capture red many aspects of the World War .
