Company of Heroes (2013)
Company of Heroes is a 2013 American film direc-ted by Don Michael Paul, very loosely related to the video game of the same name. With the Germans apparently near defeat in the latter part of World War II, a squad of American sol-diers from the 2nd Infantry Division on a routine mission near Elsenborn in the Bel-gian Ardennes encounter a surprisingly strong German tank destroyer and infantry force. After a fierce firefight, the Americans escape and try to make their way back to their own lines to report the German surge. En route, they stumble across a Ger-man experimental site, still smoldering with flames from some devastating event. Surprisingly, this site is in Heidenfeld, Thuringia in Germany, although their own lines are hundreds of kilometers away in Bel-gium.They come across an American OSS agent suffering from horrific burn wounds, and learn that the Germans are close to development of a super-bomb which will enable them to turn the tide of war and achieve victory. The American agent, knowing that he is near death, asks the soldiers to complete his mission: to find the bomb, disable it, and extract the scientist developing it who wishes to defect.
