Merrill's Marauders (1962)

Merrill's Marauders was a 1962 World War II film that tells the true story of a special American unit that conducted raids deep inside Japanese-occupied territory in Burma during 1942. Directed by Samuel Fuller (The Steel Helmet, The Big Red One), the film co-starred Claude Akins and Peter Brown and was made with the cooperation of the United States military.
