The movie is a classic but yall do remember all but two were killed...I don't know if thas the best story to follow
Not every mission has to be a gun blazing battle with tons of victories as we are seeing so much of. I mean look at the plot of the movie...
1. Russians and Cubans invade
2. A group of high school students from a small town who are separated from family and friends end up becoming an effective fighting militia.
3. Over several months and with some advise from an American officer they began to take back their town piece by piece terrorizing those dang Russian and Cuban invaders.
4. As this movie truly shows war is not nice and there causalities so I think having only two of the original group survive the war was a true account.
Just my opinion on the subject.
