In the end of the movie, George (the oldest Sullivan brother) was in Sick Bay when the remaining four brothers go to rescue him. In reality, George and Al were the only Sullivan brothers to survive the sinking of USS Juneau. Al drowned the next day and George succumbed 4-5 days later to dementia, when he shed his uniform and swam off in search of his brothers. See more »
This is a must see movie to truly apreciate the sacrifices made for our country by the "greatest generation". The heart of the movie is the lives of the brothers growing up. If the film were made today it would probably focus too much on the actual death of the boys, instead this film instead focuses on the lives that were lived by 5 great american men. If you have never seen this film, get a copy of it and watch a cinematic triumph in storytelling.
