a mid-night clear is pretty good as well as when trumpets fade although this is about the hurtgen forest battle for seer realism it still has to be band of brothers for me

There are a couple of episodes of HBO's Band of Brothers dealing with the 101st's experience in Bastogne. Battleground is also very good for its age. the movie "Battle of the Bulge" itself is pretty lame.

Another vote for Battleground. It's one of my top 10 war flicks.It does a good job of telling the story of the average soldier. In the few scenes where actual footage isn't used they used authentic military equipment, a M16 quad 50 half track and, I think, a U.S. TD of some kind. No M47s pretending to be panzers or M24s being Shermans.

Hart's War was a pretty good "Bulge" era film. I loved the music!

There are a couple of episodes of HBO's Band of Brothers dealing with the 101st's experience in Bastogne. Battleground is also very good for its age. the movie "Battle of the Bulge" itself is pretty lame.



Henry Fonda's Battle of the Bulge flick almost looked so cool. I agree with you on what ruined what could have been a splendid movie when they sunstituted German Tigers with US tanks.

Band of Brothers is also good though it focused mainly on the 506th's participation.

Kinda wish Hollywood would make a movie focued mainly of the heroic stand of the 101st at Bastogne.
