Four people's reactions to war
17 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mickey Rooney received an Oscar nomination for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in this movie which presents a small group of American soldiers in Italy in 1944.

Three types of soldiers are presented here, based on their reactions to their first encounter with the German enemy while in Italy.

Rooney is the energetic and a happy go-with-the-punches soldier.

Wendell Corey is a fairly well balanced soldier but is unable to kill the enemy when he is faced with the possibility.

Don Taylor is a superman in battle situations but has trouble when faced with normal human spiritual matters, no doubt stunted by his upbringing.

Nicole Maurey is a local Italian prostitute, forced to sell herself for survival.
