Following the Normandy Landings, a group of U.S. soldiers go behind enemy lines to retrieve a paratrooper whose brothers have been killed in action.
In 2007 the American Film Institute ranked this as the #71 Greatest Movie of All Time. This was one of the newest entries on the list (from films which were released between 1997 and 2005).
LCVP pilot: CLEAR THE RAMP! THIRTY SECONDS! GOD BE WITH YA!
When the machine gunner in the bell tower runs out of ammo, Jackson takes over sniping. The first German he kills is on the self propelled gun and he falls off the side. The second one he kills falls near a big rectangular shaped piece of wood from one of the destroyed buildings. The third soldier he kills falls on top of the piece of wood, but there is no sign of the soldier who had fallen there right before he did.
