During the Korean War Lt. Sam Pryor volunteers his platoon to escort Greek troops to perform a reconnaissance mission behind Communist lines. Due to his Greek heritage Pryor is initially proud to accompany the Greek contingent but his feelings change to scorn and mistrust when what he believes is cowardice shown by the Greek soldiers and their leaders results in the near annihiliation of his own platoon. An uneasy alliance is maintained between the US and Greek troops as the enemy's true objective is learned. Written by

Victor Mature and Alexander Scourby star in The Glory Brigade, a story of the Korean War with an emphasis on the international makeup of the forces under the UN command against North Korea and later the Chinese. In this situation the American survivors of a patrol behind enemy lines are forced to cooperate both Greeks and Americans.
And here Victor Mature is a Greek-American and during the mission he who had bragged about the fighting ability of his native people gets a bad first impression. But they are forced to cooperate on the mission which is to find out if the North Koreans are planning a big offensive on the other side of a river which is now marking the battle lines of the two armies. Mature's patrol is wiped out save for himself, Lee Marvin, Roy Roberts, and Alvy Moore. Even though he's feeling embarrassed, Mature now has to rely on Scourby's men.
The Glory Brigade earned some glory for 20th Century Fox and the folks in front of and behind the camera. It's a nice no frills war film with the cast acquitting themselves well.
