Storyline

The film's focus is the 505th Airborne Infantry: its organization, training, and combat debut in Sicily in July 1943. The training reflected highly on the regiment's CO, Colonel James Gavin, later a lieutenant general and one of the unsung heroes of World War II. But no amount of good training could completely counter the bad weather, faulty navigation, and limited intelligence that eventuated in the jumpers fighting Tiger tanks with bazookas. Scattered as it was, the 505th reorganized and carried out its mission, in the process so disorganizing German units that they could not carry out theirs. Its casualties were serious, but its success won paratroopers a permanent place in the American arsenal. Written by Anonymous

Guy Dorian in Combat jump
12 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had such fun shooting this film (Guy Dorian/Luis D'Santos)and playing the role of Santos. It was fun having to learn some lines in Spanish and pull off a convincing accent. The weapons training was fun too, and I met some new friends along the way.We shot in PA. We traveled hours and hours back and forth at crazy times. We even had to wear clothes that weren't washed for days. But I enjoyed it all. Santos was a very brave soldier. He captured 15 men single handedly. My favorite line was "I have to take a ship Sr...real bad"... laughing out loud. (I had to edit a word for posting). Hope you enjoy the film! May God Bless This Country!

Guy Dorian.
