Storyline

In 1944, a group of American soldiers known as "The Filthy Thirteen" are becoming an increasing problem for their superiors - disobeying orders, bathing infrequently and often going AWOL from their barracks. But the rebellious men are given an opportunity to atone for their behavior when they are selected to be the first unit to parachute behind German lines during the invasion of Normandy. Their goal is to move through enemy territory on foot and destroy Nazi supply lines and escape routes. Some call it a suicide mission. But they haven't counted on the ferocity and determination of this ragtag group of D-Day Assassins who will stop at nothing to take down the enemy. This is the brutal and thrilling real life story which inspired "The Dirty Dozen". Written by North Bank Entertainment

This story deserves better!
16 June 2019 | by ughleeSee all my reviews

This is one of the greatest untold stories of WWII. It was the basis for the myths that formed the fictional Dirty Dozen, but the true story is so fantastic it didn't need embellishment, artistic license, or any additional drama. The true story should be told and can stand on its own, but it really deserves better than this. This was a travesty.
