   SynopsisHeroes are born when bullets fly, when the earth explodes, when cannons roar...

When Trumpets Fade tells the story of one of the most harrowing battles of WW2--the Battle of Hurtgen in the fall of 1944.Hundreds of lives have been lost and four renegade soldiers desperately fight to stay alive.
When Trumpets Fade takes you onto the fields of valor, deep into the mud and madness of battle.American forces are under orders to secure a bridge flanked by enemy tanks.Men already trapped in a hellish minefield face death from all sides as shells rain down from the sky.Hundreds of lives have been lost, and the surviving troops are bloodied and shell-shocked.Now it's down to four renegade soldiers: a frightened private promoted to captain, a strong-willed medic, an angry young sergeant, and an inexperienced new recruit.They have only one thing in common--a desperate will to stay alive.But war can make unlikely heroes out of men who will not die.
