Overview
A guitar-picking good ol' boy. A clean-cut all-American. A Navajo. A bookworm. A lumberjack. A slum kid. All enter Marine boot camp to be trained, hardened, ready to answer their country's 'Battle Cry'.

Scripted by Leon M. Uris from his own novel, directed by action master Raoul Walsh and starring a Who's Who of '50s movie stars, 'Battle Cry' is an epic ode to World War II Marine heroism and home front sacrifice, a saga following recruits from boot camp to a New Zealand base of operations to the war they knew would someday come their way: the bloody invasion of Saipan. Enlist now alongside the fighting men and stalwart women of 'Battle Cry' for boisterous tenderness and gung-ho excitement.
