Sergeant York (1941)
Alvin York, a poor Appalachian pacifist drafted into World War I. Placed in an impossible place, York single-handedly captures an entire enemy platoon and becomes a national hero. This World War II-era Hollywood classic based on the real-life war hero.

Action master Joel Schumacher turns his lens on a platoon of soldiers en route to “Tigerland” for simulated combat training prior to their hitch in Vietnam.
