Objective, Burma! is an Oscar-nominated 1945 war film which was loosely based on the six-month raid by Merrill's Marauders in the Burma Campaign during the Second World War. The film, made by Warner Brothers immediately after the raid, was directed by Raoul Walsh and starred Errol Flynn.
Mark Williams: What if my parachute doesn't open? Capt. Nelson: Then you'll be the first one on the ground.
Paratrooper: (upon following the dead body of young paratrooper Hollis) So much for Mrs. Hollis' nine months of pain and twenty years of hope.
Pvt. Nebraska Hooper: It's sure peaceful so far. Cpl. Gabby Gordon: That's the way I like it... peaceful. I already said when I starved to death, I want it to be peaceful.
