  1. ‘Battleground’ isn’t exactly forgotten – it appears on TCM every couple of years, usually around Memorial Day.
    That said, it certainly deserves wider recognition as one of the better ‘war’ movies, with an ideal cast including John Hodiak Van Heflin and James Whitmore as a platoon of weary and cynical US infantryman living, fighting, and often dying in their foxholes against Hitler’s last desperate counteroffensive during the winter of 1944.
