"The trauma to me was deep and lasting. And the battle will always be yesterday." This is a collection of oral histories told by rangers and airborne veterans. These are the heroes who won WWII, and then shut their mouths. Fifty years later, they feel they can speak their minds. Eight different actors play the parts of different men. They recall grisly and glorious moments, incidents they have tried hard to forget. Prisoners are shot; GIs burst into tears, refuse orders, show extraordinary bravery. If there's a single theme, it's the love these soldiers had for one another. They're all pacifists now. Thank God they weren't pacifists then.
