The film stars Harold Russell, who lost his hands because of defective dynamite on D-Day in June 1944. The movie explores the challenges a wounded soldier would need to overcome to adjust to civilian life.
“Although the U.S. Army thought Russell was such a lousy actor and overdubbed his voice, he won an Oscar the next year for ‘The Best Years of Our Lives,’ ” Grayson said.
“Diary of a Sergeant” is one of the most famous training films, added Grayson. “It is vastly different from the standard films that covered mundane topics like cooking and wood chopping.”
