Film: The Lost Battalion

Our next movie in the WWI series will be shown on October 17th at 7 pm in the Community Room.

The Lost Battalion tells the story of the men of the U.S. Army’s 77th Division, 308th Battalion were surrounded by German troops in the Argonne Forest. Without food, water or reserve ammunition, cut off from supply and communication lines, and subjected to constant assaults and bombardments the 550 soldiers fought for survival. The Germans gave them two options. Surrender. Or die. They chose a third.
