In one of the most powerful films ever made about World War II, director Samuel Fuller tells the semi-autobiographical story of a squad of sharpshooters trying not to die in The Big Red One. World War I veteran Sergeant Possum (Academy Award winner Lee Marvin) wants to get the job done and to get himself and his squad of green recruits out alive. It's just a job: Kill the enemy before they kill you. And through the seemingly endless bloodshed from North Africa, to Sicily, the Normandy Invasion and the push into Germany, his now-veteran squad--Gruff (Mark Hamill), Zab (Robert Carradine), Vinci (Bobby CiCicco) and Johnson (Kelly Ward)--learns both the brutal horror of war and to never become emotionally close with a new recruit, because he most likely die.
