In this episode of the Fighting On Film war movie podcast we discuss that questionable classic from 1965 - 'The Battle of the Bulge'. We unpack why this epic 3-hour war movie fails to do the story of the actual battle justice despite a decent cast that includes Henry Fonda, Robert Shaw, Telly Savalas, Charles Bronson & Robert Ryan.
