Description: Based on the historical event known as the "Malmedy Massacre, " this is the tale of a group of American soldiers in Germany in World War II, one of whom served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Germany just before the war. In mid-December 1944, Hitler's Army blitzkriegs through the Ardennes Forest into Belgium, creating the colossal wintertime offensive known as the Battle of the Bulge. Sergeant Daniel Epstein and close friend Nathan Greer find themselves held captive with more than 70 other American Soldiers in a snow-covered field. Without warning, German soldiers open fire on the American prisoners. Epstein, Greer and a handful of other soldiers are able to escape the massacre by hiding in the nearby woods. Without weapons or food, they take on the unforgiving winter trying to find their way back to Allied-occupied territory.
