This is the true story of Jake McNiece, who led a band of tough and determined paratroopers called the Filthy Thirteen (part of the 101st Airborne platoon). His anti-authoritarian and no-nonsense attitude, mixed with his courageous spirit and wild antics, inspired the fictional tale of THE DIRTY DOZEN, both the book and subsequent film.
