Description

Based on the novel by James Jones, THE THIN RED LINE tells the story of a group of men, an Army Rifle company called C-for-Charlie, who change, suffer, and ultimately make essential discoveries about themselves during the fierce World War II battle of Guadalcanal.  The story takes place as Army troops are moved in to relieve battle-weary Marine units.  It follows their journey, from the surprise of an unopposed landing, through the bloody and exhausting battles that follow, to the ultimate departure of those who survived. THE THIN RED LINE is more than a tale of men fighting a key battle, one which would ultimately stem the Japanese advance through the Pacific Islands.  It explores the intense bonds that develop between men under terrible stress.  The soldiers' feelings and emotions develop into nothing less than a sense of love of family.  The horrors of war help them lose their idea of self and of the world around them.  They were no longer fighting solely for patriotic reasons or the larger world and its issues which had brought them there; they were fighting for survival and for the men next to them.
