Entertaining and interesting film.

Five infantry soldiers of the national army, gathered in one place in Madrid, make a picture March 28, 1939-final of the war and promise to meet again after ten years in the same place.

"La Patrulla" is essentially the story of two friends who fall for the same woman. Besides this we have purely military and adventure sequences but left in the background. Start with the conclusion of the Spanish Civil War and narrates the course of the lives of members of a patrol that fought in it by the national side. The story is interesting but it has some ups and downs and full of strong attacks on communism and patriotic fanfare (understandable looking at the date it was filmed) that are not critical in understanding the argument.

Interestingly, the section in which the experiences of members of volunteer soldiers in the "Blue Division" Soviet lands, subject rarely brought to the big screen will tell, but the films that deserve mention as "Embajadores En El Infierno" 1956, "La Espera" 1956, "Ispansi " 2010, "Silencio En La Nieve" 2011.

It is entertaining and interesting and is a test of how much there is in the Spanish cinema.
