Storyline

As the seasoned infantry and tank units of the German 11th Panzer "Ghost" division move silently into position on the snow covered hills around Nennig Germany ,a battle weary GI and his unit stand ready to defend the small town, a key position in the Allied advance to win the war. Outgunned and outnumbered, S/ Sgt Don Smith struggles to find hope and courage against overwhelming odds in one of the decisive confrontations in the "Battle of the Bulge" during WWII. His squad of GI's of the 94th Infantry Division lay dug in on the ridge-line outside of town. No one in high command believed that German forces would attack in the sub zero temperatures and near blizzard conditions. As the pre-dawn attack comes, with communications down Sgt. Smith is left with no choice but to make his way through enemy fire, unarmed and wounded, into town and warn of the coming attack. Based on actual accounts "Everyman's War" explores the heroic events of this decorated veterans courage and the struggle ... Written by Anonymous

Finally a real HONEST depiction of a soldier's story!
16 May 2010 | by sturm9See all my reviews

Far too many "Hollywood" made films forget the truth in their quest to cash in on historically inspired stories. Also most want to come from the "big or grand picture" point of view. Using nothing but original vehicles; uniforms; weapons; equipment; and even ships, this one delivers a true story in an interesting and entertaining way. All from the view point of just one man from a small town in Oregon. The director/writers did not feel the need to re-write history or over dramatize the story with ridiculous special effects, excessive blood, or gore! Yet, it still has all the REAL aspects of war: anger, pain, monotony, excitement, and even the hopes fears, and love interests too. With spectacular production value, they kept it simple and powerful. As such, I find it a very moving and honest tribute to the simple soldier in WW2. A must see movie!
