I know this is short notice

but it came down

the pipe this morning

so we had to move fast.

We're currently about five miles

behind enemy lines.

The Germans are using

two bridges

to cross the Orr River

here and here.

You guys are going to blow

the one located in Dasburg.

So we infiltrate the Germans

as refugees

and then once we get to Dasburg

we put on the German uniforms

to gain access to the bridge.


Now this mission is going to

take both of you to accomplish.

Timing the explosives

on each side of the bridge

is very important,

it's the only way to get

the bridge down.

You guys are the best team

of demolition experts

I can find that speak

fluent German.

What is all of that?

Are you writing a book?

It's one of them dirty stories

like in Esquire.

Bigger words, Jensen.

Bigger words.

Here we go.

Three minutes to drop...

May Day, May Day, going down!

Going down!!!

Mother, the record player

is too loud.

It comforts me.

I'm going to feed the animals.

Oh, and make sure the oven has

plenty of wood for the night.

I don't want the animals

to freeze.

I know, mother. I know.

Oh, come on!


I didn't think I'd make it.

I barely got out of

the airplane.

Hey, where are we?

I think we're uh-


That's Jensen!

Follow me. Stay tight.

Help! Help! Help!!!

Keep it down, Jensen!

Shut it!

My leg, I think it's busted!

You have

to quiet down!

Where's Lefeuvre?

He didn't make it.

But I've got his gun

and his pack.

Gimme that!

We need to get Jensen

to shelter,

find some medical supplies.

God, his leg is busted up

pretty bad.

No, it's ok,

it's gonna be fine.

Alright, we gotta move.

Can you guys get him?

Yeah, come on.

I got you, let's go.




Don't move!


There are no Germans here.
