Battleground (1949 film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (262 words)
Battleground is a 1949 war film which tells the story of a squad of the 101st Airborne Division trying to cope during the Battle of the Bulge at Bastogne, Belgium.
This film was notable for being the first post-World War II film to portray American soldiers as vulnerable and human, as opposed to inspirational and gung-ho.
While there is no question concerning the courage and steadfastedness of the members of the squad, they each have at least one moment in the film where they seriously consider running away, or scheme to get sent away from the front line, or vocally complain about being in the situation they are in.
Twelve O'Clock High - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (679 words)
The film's most significant deviation from reality comes in its climax: Armstrong, the real-world version of Savage, did not break down and have to be relieved.
Along with the 1948 film Command Decision, it marked a turn away from the optimistic, morale-boosting style of wartime films and toward a gritty realism that dealt directly with the human costs of war.
This film is widely used in both the military and civilian worlds to teach the principles of leadership.
