"Screaming Eagles" is a historical drama about paratroopers of the 101st Airborne Division fighting during the D-Day Invasion in June of 1944. The title was the Division's nickname.
Most German vehicles are actually US Army vehicles painted up with German markings. The German truck that the American soldiers steal is a Dodge Weapons Carrier, the background German armored vehicles are US M13 halftracks and the German command car is a Willys T-14 6X6 (a US Jeep with six wheels, very rare!)
When attacking the farmhouse, a GI who is shot at by German machine gunners inside the house falls back against what looks like solid concrete or stone fencing, but it gives way at a seam and bows under his weight, proving it is just thin plywood with a stucco-like coating to make it look like concrete or stone.
