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

Early in the movie, Lt. Rennick and his driver, Sgt. Griffin, are driving in an open jeep to Rennick's new headquarters at the convent. It is clearly winter with snow on the ground and leafless trees. Yet, when they drive up to their headquarters gate, it now looks like early summer, with trees with full leaves and no snow on the ground. Then, it's back to winter again with heavy snow when Happy parachutes back into Germany. See more »
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.
