WWII is entering its last phase: Germany is in ruins, but does not yield. The US army lacks crucial knowledge about the German units operating on the opposite side of the Rhine, and decides to send two German prisoners to gather information. The scheme is risky: the Gestapo retains a terribly efficient network to identify and capture spies and deserters. Moreover, it is not clear that "Tiger", who does not mind any dirty work as long as the price is right, and war-weary "Happy", who might be easily betrayed by his feelings, are dependable agents. After Tiger and another American agent are successfully infiltrated, Happy is parachuted in Bavaria. His duty: find out the whereabouts of a powerful German armored unit moving towards the western front. Written by

One of the first films after World War II to portray the German people - outside of the Nazi regime - in a sympathetic light. See more »

Cpl. Karl Maurer aka Happy:
I believe in a life in which one is not always afraid, in a life in which people are free and honest with each other. And I know we won't have this in Germany... until... until we have lost.

Probably the most realistic WW II war movies made. Most of the extras are real German POWs, all german actors were ex German soldiers. The uniforms, helmets, weapons etc. are authentic and accurate. The film was filmed in post war Germany, the bombed out street scenes are the real thing! The film is even somewhat sympathetic towards Germans which could not have been popular that soon after war.
