During World War II, a special fighting unit is formed that combines a crack Canadian Army unit and a conglomeration of U.S. Army misfits who had previously served time in military jails. After an initial period of conflict between the two groups, their enmity turns to respect and friendship, and the unit is sent Italy to attempt a dangerous mission that has heretofore been considered impossible to carry out.

A great movie which serves as a link to my grandfather.
My grandfather passed away when I was 14. He was a member of the First Special Service Force "The Devil's Brigade". While the movie is not 100% historically accurate, it gives me a link to my grandfather. When I watch the movie it gives me an appreciation of what he did to serve his country. I would recommend this movie to anyone with an interest in WWII.
