Product Description

Part of the Blue Badge of Infantry Series for The Big Picture Army weekly TV show that extolled the US Army while also being a good recruiting device, this is a short history of its oldest fighting unit---the famed 1st Infantry Division. Nicknamed the Big Red One because of the red number one on its shoulder patch, the unit took part in the Operation Torch landings in North Africa in 1942, then fought Rommel at Kasserine Pass in Tunisia in 1943. The division invaded Normandy at Omaha Beach, then drove across France into Belgium. Among the first US troops to enter Germany, the unit breached the Siegfried line, then fought house-to-house in Aachen, the first German city captured by the Americans. It also held the northern flank at Bastogne in the Battle of the Bulge in late 1944, and helped occupy Germany. USA, 1951, B&W, 29 minutes.
