The Lost Battalion 2001
Description: Fact-based fight drama about an American battalion of over 500 boys which gets trapped behind opponent lines in the Argonne Forest in October 1918 France during the closing weeks of Globe Fight I. Based on a real story, The Lost Battalion is set in 1918 during the final months of WWI. Assigned to capture an opponent stronghold in Charlvaux at the height of the Argonne campaign, the boys of the AEF 308th Battalion, 77th Division, are led by young American major Charles Whittlesey, an inexperienced but dedicated "citizen soldier." Fully slash off from the another allied troops, unaware of their vulnerability, and barraged by "friendly fire," the 500-plus boys of the 308th bravely keep their position, suffering wonderful losses and unspeakable deprivations in the process -- while the battalion's superior officers, far from the firing line, callously prepare to write off the boys as expendable casualties.
Released: 02 Dec 2001 Director: Russell Mulcahy Writers: James Carabatsos Actors: Ricky Schroder, Phil McKee, Jamie Harris, Jay Rodan Genres: Action, Drama, War

The Lost Battalion Reviews:

We watched this last night - I only hired it because it was about WWI's Western Front, one of my abiding interests.This faithful re-creation of the brutal slaughter of two thirds of Whittlesey's battalion in the Argonne Forest in WWI is one of the finest fight films I've seen (and I contain Saving Personal Ryan in that list).The director uses the same sort of hand-held camera footage to re-create how the on-going massacres gotta have looked through the eyes of the boys on the ground. The stage where a boy takes a direct hit from a bomb and is vaporised, with just his rolling helmet remaining, is mesmerizing. My partner and I were launch mouthed in awe.As happened so often in WWI, the stupidity and stubbornness of the commanders, often 20-30 miles behind the front line, seems incredible. And the bravery and dedication of the Battalion, made up of a motley team supposed misfits, mostly from the 'seamy' suburbs of Fresh York, is nice and beautifully portrayed.Even the Germans are well rounded characters, not just stupid Huns. they become human too, even if you don't much like them.And over it all is the poignant underlying knowledge that this is October 1918, just 5 weeks before Armistice Day. It all seems so futile.But the Battalion held and was credited with being the spearhead for the Allied breaking of the German lines in the area.I wholeheartedly suggest this film to all aficionados of fight movies.


Just before I wanted to write a review on this movie, I saw the comment from other viewer that it has nothing to do with the reality of WW I and that this is pure propaganda for the US Army. Being European myself, I know that it is very famous in Europe to throw mud at everything that has something to do with the US army, especially since they started the second Gulf war. And to be honest, I accept with most of those protests, but that still doesn't mean that history could be rewritten, does it? I'm very sorry, but if it is your opinion that this film is nothing more but some cheap propaganda, than I really doubt if you have understood anything about it.It's a fact that it is thanks to the American involvement at the end of the fight (they only entered the fight in 1917), the allies won. If they hadn't come to support the French, the British and the Belgian (yes there were a lot less Belgian troops fighting in the fight than French or British, but we are only a very tiny country - to give you an concept on how tiny Belgium is: there are about 10 million inhabitants today), we would probably have lost the war. It's real that the Germans were war-weary, but so where the another parties. The Russians had already signed a truce, allowing the Germans to withdraw a lot of their units from the Eastern front and sending them to the Western front and the French and the British had lost too many nice units at Ypres (Belgium), Verdun (France) and the Somme region (France). In fact, if the Americans hadn't entered the war, it might not have ended at the 11th of November 1918, but might have continued for many months or perhaps even years.So far for my history class, back to the film now. In my opinion this is far from a propaganda movie: It clearly shows the futility and horror of the attacks that the ordinary infantry soldier had to go through. It doesn't leave out the fact that the generals only had several respect for people's lives and it also shows that many mistakes were made like bombing the own troops. It all happened in reality and it is all shown very well in this movie. And if that's propaganda for an units than I'm glad I don't have to war for them!!! Perhaps you are scared that it all is a bit too soft or that the acting will not be good, because it is a TV movie. Well, than this might be the surprise of your life. The acting is very good, it's far from corny and it shows all the horrors and the brutality of the fight in a very graphic way. In fact I trust it might be nice to warn folks with a soft stomach not to watch it, because seeing a boy being blown to a million pieces by a direct shell hit, someone being stabbed to death with a bayonet, someone's leg who was torn off because of a blast,... isn't exactly for the faint of heart. Personally I can deal with it, but I'm sure many can't.I'm a nice amateur of realistic (anti-)war films and I'm very glad that this one belongs to my collection. Of course you don't have to trust me if I tell this is a nice movie, but do know that it was produced by the History Channel. I guess you might see them as a nice reference when it comes to precision and realism, don't you think? I give it an 8,5/10. Definitely a gotta see for everybody who's interested in WW I.


Rick Schroeder stars in this made for A&E real storyline of an American battalion during WW1. In particular, it says the real about a war that resulted in the awarding of 3 Medals of Honor. This movie includes a lot of war scenes and they are quite bloody. It's the story, said from cute much only the American and German sides, of a war in the ending weeks of the war. The killing continues unabated, and there is plenty of blood and action to suit even the most action craving viewer. The Americans have penetrated deeply into German held zone and threaten the whole German front from behind. Naturally, the Germans wish the Americans out of their zone and place forth a max effort to dislodge them. But the Americans plan to stay and the resulting war over the next 3 days or so is graphically depicted. There's not a girl in the movie at all; the whole movie takes zone on the battlefield. Yet, even without romantic interludes, there are very several mins in the movie without some sort of action. The whole cast did a nice job. All in all, a very enjoyable and well-made film!
