In 1942, men from across the USA are in Camp Toccoa, Georgia to undergo paratrooper training. For the men of 'E' Easy Company the training is particularly difficult as a result of their demanding commander, Captain Herbert Sobel. He drives them incessantly to excel, canceling their weekend passes on a whim. His favorite chore is to have the men undertake a run up a hill known as Currahee. While the men are fit and ready for battle, thanks to Sobel, he has unfortunately shown himself to be a weak tactical commander. Once in England, and knowing they will soon be invading the Continent, the sergeants stage a rebellion. Sobel's excesses come to an end when Lt. Dick Winters requests a court martial rather than accept punishment for one of Sobel's lame charges. Written by garykmcd

An apple. A tree. A boy. And a stick.....A "9,1"...
5 January 2017 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the first steps of a Russian novel, or the American romanticism, or should we say; the life itself...

Men who want to fight for "a cause" are made of life... They have families, dreams and hearts that have both loyalty and disorder...

Fertile lands as well as barrens will hold all these men in their rests...

This is a dream... turning to a nightmare. Or a journey now has enemy parties coming to its way... that is Europe.

Well, the journey started off with success as the cast seems so focused and the technical committee does a good job so far as they switched from one scene to another in style!..

(P.S.: Music is of the heart of any well-presented story... This story is on the right track.)

"Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you, but aggress not. Lo! Allah loveth not aggressors." The Gracious Koran, the second Chapter (called "The Cow"), the 190th Verse.
