Story of G.I. Joe (1945, United States)

Categories: infantry moviesurban warfare movies

Running time: 110 minutes

Language: English / Italian

War correspondent Ernie Pyle joins Company C, 18th Infantry Regiment as they have been moved to Italy after fighting in North Africa. In Italy Pyle describes everyday life of simple GIs - the hot, cold, rain, mud, endless marching and waiting.

Film based on works of Pulitzer Prize-winner Ernie Pyle, who was war correspondent in Africa, Italy and Pacific (where he died in combat). The concept of movie showing the real life of American infantrymen was innovatory - we don’t see them as heroes conucting crusade in Europe, but we wee their normal life - when the march towards next city, when they eat, when they hide in the rain, when they talk in the shadow of the trees.

Interesting movie based on a real life events depicted in Ernie Pyle’s columns published in American newspapers during the war.
