On July 10, 1943, a unit from Oklahoma composed of Native Americans, Mexican Americans and Dust Bowl cowboys, most of whom couldn't drink together in the same bars back home, landed in Sicily and endured a brutal 500 day trek through Nazi-occupied Europe. This is the story of those men, a group of soldiers known as the Thunderbirds.

Did You Know?


The SS troops faced in the Vosges were units of the SS Nord Divsion, who'd spent the greater part of the war in Finland on the northernmost reaches of the Eastern front. When the Finns surrendered, they retreated across Finland into Norway, They were supposed to take part in the Battle of the Bulge, but were too long in refitting after getting shipped back to Denmark. They took part in Operation Northwind, a futile offensive into the Vosges mountains in eastern France in the early weeks of 1945. This Division of the SS was a "clean" unit, having no atrocities on their war record over the entire course of the war. This is probably had more to do with their theater of operations than any deviance in ideology from other SS units. See more »

Decent war story
11 November 2020 | by jaystreet46See all my reviews

I don't see what the big deal is with the filter. It doesn't take away from the story. I guess some people just have to complain, no matter how petty the reason. I'm a history buff, and it tells an interesting story about an interesting group of men.
