Terrible film of a great act

I am a great lover of the WWII film genre and have to say that this is the worse one I have ever seen, if it was on very late night on TV and I flicked it on, it would be flicked of pretty quick - unfortunately i bought the DVD so felt i had to watch it to the end - which I did with a lot of fast forwarding - it won't be watched again.

I think they tried to bring you in along the lines of "getting to know the men" by flash backs to their live before joining up - i don't need to see this every five minutes, either put the "family" part at the start or don't bother.

the music was so "TV film" i almost laughed but i couldn't as i had paid money out - the battle scenes where non existent barring in mind this is supposed to focus on the battle which suffered the loss of nearly half of its roster—over 800 casualties, including 121 dead—while rescuing 211 members of the 36th Infantry Division's 1st Battalion, 141st Infantry, which had been surrounded by German forces in the Vosges mountains since 24 October.
