“The Greatest Honor” is the story of a son’s last chance to understand the combat experience of his father, John Amm, a veteran of “C” Company of the 260th Infantry Regiment, 65th Infantry Division.
John Amm’s unit was the “tip of the spear” in the Allied push into Germany during the final stages of World War 2.
On the 500 mile route the unit took from Le Havre, France to Linz, Austria, John Amm and his fellow infantrymen witnessed the horrors of the Holocaust, and the cost of the war on the people in towns and camps they liberated, as well as the sacrifices made by his comrades in arms.
He remained mostly silent about this experience for almost 70 years.
This documentary details the journey of discovering John Amm’s silent heroism, what that information has done to help his own family and those he served with understand a pivotal moment in history, and the effort to preserve his story, and those he served with, for posterity.
