On August 15, 1944 the 517th Parachute Regimental Combat Team (PRCT) jumped over the south of France. Their mission was to support and protect the Allied Troops marching to Berlin. Landing in enemy territory, they fell under immediate attack. In their effort to complete the mission and rendez-vous with their unit, three isolated paratroopers come across a group of French resistants in desperate need. They decide to help liberate some of the captive Partisans. Doing so they will risk their lives. Written by

Emelie's sniper rifle is a Mosin-Nagant M91/30 PU. This is a Soviet weapon which would have been found on the Eastern Front and highly unlikely to show up in Southern France (or anywhere in France for that matter). Even the ability for her to get ammunition (during the war) would have been near impossible. See more »
It is just historically inaccurate. The one GI's girlfriend gives him a camera and tells him to send her a photo, every week. Duh,is it a digital camera or a Polaroid? Of course not so where does he get that film developed...Adolf's One Hour Photo? Also, this chick's hair is very modern looking, definitely not a 40's hairstyle. When the GI with the mo-hawk is with his original unit, he is wearing a plain helmet. Later, it sprouts netting. The one guy's helmet has a paratrooper chin strap and the other guy's does not. In addition, the french resistance girl has zip up boots, not authentic to the period. We make a big deal of D- Day and the war in Europe but keep in mind that 69% of the German Army and 90% of the elite troops were deployed on the Russian Front.
OK, enough of the negative. I do feel that the actors tried really hard to do a good job and Lincoln Hoppe had very good intentions, trying to show soldiers on both sides as people, not just stereotypes. As a whole, this is a watchable and entertaining movie. I enjoyed the special features as well as the film.
