Falknov Nad Ohrí (German: Falkenau An Der Eger), now known as Sokolov, is a town in the Karlovy Vary Region of the Czech Republic. From 1938 to 1945, during the years of Nazi Germany's occupation, the town of Falkenau was one of the municipalities in Sudetenland. During World War II, Falkenau was the site of a sub-camp of the Flossenbürg concentration camp. The camp at Falkenau was captured by the U.S. 1st Infantry Division on May 6, 1945. Nearly all of the town's population, being Germans, were expelled after 1945. It was renamed Sokolov in 1948 in honor of the Battle of Sokolovo of March 8-9, 1943, in which Czechoslovak soldiers fought alongside Soviet soldiers near Kharkiv in Ukraine.

Samuel Fuller, also known as Sam Fuller, American combat soldier, screenwriter, novelist, and film director known for low-budget, understated genre movies with controversial themes, often made outside the conventional studio system (August 12, 1912 - October 30, 1997) was born Samuel Michael Fuller in Worcester, Massachusetts, of Jewish parents, Rebecca (Baum) and Benjamin Fuller. Fuller wrote his first screenplay for Hats Off in 1936, and made his directorial debut with the Western I Shot Jesse James (1949). He would continue to direct several other Westerns and war thrillers throughout the 1950s. Fuller shifted from Westerns and war thrillers in the 1960s with his low-budget thriller Shock Corridor in 1963, followed by the neo-noir The Naked Kiss (1964). He was inactive in filmmaking for most of the 1970s, before writing and directing the war epic The Big Red One (1980), and the experimental White Dog (1982), whose screenplay he co-wrote with Curtis Hanson. During World War II, Fuller joined the United States Army. He was assigned as an infantryman to the 16th Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division, and saw heavy fighting. He was involved in landings in Africa, Sicily, and Normandy and also saw action in Belgium and Czechoslovakia. In 1945, he fought in the liberation of the Falkenau concentration camp, and shot 16 mm footage, known as V-E +1 (which Fuller claimed was his directorial debut), that was later integrated into the French documentary Falkenau: The Impossible (1988). In 2014, the footage was selected for the United States National Film Registry. For his military service, Fuller was awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Combat Infantryman Badge. He reached the rank of Corporal. Fuller used his wartime experiences as material in his films, especially in The Big Red One (1980), the nickname for the 1st Infantry Division he served in. After the war, Fuller co-authored a regimental history of the 16th Infantry.
