For some reason some time ago, over time I purchased various movies on DVD that dealt with World War II. Some of these movies I did watch soon after purchase, while others I didn't watch and just took up space.

Recently I ran across a movie called Battleground in the collection which I didn't watch until recently (late in August), and just viewed it a second time today (9/16/16).

It is about a platoon in the 101st Airborne Division fighting during the siege of Bastogne in late 1944. Of the names of the actors I recognize in this movie were Van Johnson, Ricardo Montalban, James Whitmore, and Richard Jaeckel. I also saw James Arness name in the starting credits but he had a minor role in the movie and it wasn't until the second viewing that I managed to spot him in the scenes.
