The cold rain is relentless. Huddled in the mountains, the Gis are soaked, weary, miserable. One might say it was hell on Earth but these men know better. They already walked through hell when they spearheaded the invasions of North Africa and Sicily. Waiting next is something worse: the brutal nightmare of Anzio.

Joe) directs Darby's Rangers, the heroic saga of the on- and off-battlefield lives of America's fierce World War II fighting forces.
