Oddly enough it is a pretty fair representation of what happened to the so called “Lost Battalion”. They got the basic story pretty spot on and the uniforms and gear were too. Not a bad movie at all, especially by “Hollywood” standards.
Totally unrelated to the movie, but I’m currently reading John Prados’s Normandy Crucible, where he makes repeated reference to a SPOILER 1944 American “Lost Battalion” in SPOILER Normandy during the SPOILER American breakout from the bocage in SPOILER Operation Cobra.
How many damned battalions was the US Army in the habit of losing in active service?

I would like to mention a movie from my country Romulus & Remus: The First King (Italian: Il primo re, 2019). It’s a retelling of the story of Romolus and Remus, the director collaborated with several archeologist to make this movie in which only proto-Latin with subtitles is spoken.
Sadly I do not have many informations about foreign distribution.
