August 1944: proceeding with the invasion of France, Patton's Third Army has advanced so far toward Paris that it cannot be supplied. To keep up the momentum, Allied HQ establishes an elite military truck route.

The temptation is to be generous to this film because of it's central theme. However in terms of pure film making it is just bad, bad, bad. The plot meanders and the acting is mediocre to downright wooden. I'm writing this as I'm watching it, and to be honest I think I've just been too kind about the acting...
