A splendid tribute to one of the Army's best officers of WWII. Megellas still is the most decorated officer of the 82nd Airborne Division. Details his life from Wisconsin to the occupation of Berlin, including fighting in Operation Market Garden and the Battle of the Bulge. One gripe is that his buddy Lt. Rivers is mentioned frequently and then dropped. I assume he died after the war and before this documentary was made.
We follow WWII 82nd Airborne veteran James "Maggie" Megellas from Wisconsin to Europe where he fought in some of the most savage battles of World War II. "Maggie" is the most decorated officer in the history of the famed 82nd Airborne Division. Airing on American Public Television.
