WWII in cinema by Egantx7

Question 4

The late Gene Siskel called this film the greatest contemporary war film I've seen, even ranking it above the film whose director would win that year's Best Director Award. This film centers on the C Company, 1st Battalion, 27th Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division around the time of the Battle of Guadalcanal. Identify this 1998 film, based on a James Jones novel, that saw Jim Caviezel playing Pvt. Robert Witt and Sean Penn playing Sgt. Welsh; just two members of an all-star cast.
