Historical Background:
At the beginning of October 1944, after freeing up the city of Besanšon, the 3rd US Infantry Division is engaged in the Vosges Mountains. Near the village of Cleurie, they find themselves stopped by a German party entrenched on nearby heights and in a quarry. Despite artillery and tanks support, the US division suffers heavy losses as it attempts to reduce the enemy's defenses. Following this fight, Staff Sergeant Audie Murphy was promoted 1st lieutenant on the battlefield. Shortly after, he was wounded and kept away from the front for two months.
