Above average war movie

Hammer Films was really a very good studio. Not only for horror movies but also for war ones. Remember Val Guest's films such as CAMP ON BLOOD ISLAND and YESTERDAY'S ENEMY. Perhaps one or more. Very tense, well paced, sharply shot, with very deep characters. Emotion and action in the same scheme. What else could we ask for?

The story of a group of British soldiers, during WW2, in Tunisia, who gets order to hold a position, in the middle of the desert, in order to prevent Afrika Korps to advance.

I have seen many British war movies, academic ones, very talkative, flat, even with great actors such Dirk Bogarde, Richard Attenborough, Richard Todd or some others...Movies very long, long, long. Boring at the most. Not bad ones, not corny, but long. Period.

But, I repeat, the Hammer war films are worth the detour.
