Is Inglorious Bastards Based On a True Story?

I was just wondering if there really was a "real-life" American unit where their sole mission was killing Nazis.
Is Quentin Tarantino's new movie, "inglorious bastards" based on a true story?
i mean obviously the nazi part is based on a true story, but the part about the group of soldiers...
Is that part true?

Not exactly a true story. Tarantino also wrote Inglorious Bastards & claimed it was fiction.
Inglorious Bastards was inspired by the original, which bears the same title and was fiction. the only similarity is that it's WW2 and there's a group of soldiers.

There were many secret operatives placed behind German lines. But they weren't scalping Nazis and beating them with baseball bats... The UN wasn't created until after the war, so there really wasn't international law against that back then. But it was still looked down upon and it was against US law. The UN would have tried these people with war crimes after the war if it really had taken place. The original Inglorious Bastards movie is more accurate to what was really taking place. But as far as this movie goes, it wasn't meant to be accurate or even represent any real unit that was placed behind German lines. It was purely meant for entertainment.

Not a true story.

the U.N was not created till the end of the war yes but after ww1 the geneva convention was in agreement drafted at the tail end of ww1 conditioning the treatment of soldiers and armies during a war and the way they treated prisoners and pow's the nazis did not abide the geneva,
Though as far as the film goes its about as far away from the truth as my first **** anyone who watches this film and believe that a group of jewish soldiers worked behind the german lines scalping nazi soldiers needs the head testing the SS were ruthless and very well organized there is not way in hell this would have worked there was a group of jewish partazans who managed to avaide capture for almost all of the war but they didn't scalp nazis only robbed them ,,,

Youre both wrong - sort of
There were indeed ex german POWs that did in fact hunt Na zi's. Not sure the baseball bat and scalping were true however.
