									This official War Department film directed by John Huston gives an account of the nine-month battle in the area of San Pietro, Italy during World War II. The film is blunt in its presentation of the battle, including the fact that several attempts to seize control of the location failed miserably with heavy casualties. This documentary shows the true perils that soldiers experienced during the Second World War.
