A powerful movie with tremendous moral dilemmas & lessons to be contemplated
11 November 2003 | by (Wauwatosa, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

This World War II movie has a realistic well written script, good acting and presents the viewer with a powerful moral dilemma to contemplate about war. Do you follow orders regardless of what your own observations suggest you do? I saw this movie 40 years ago and have never forgotten it. The tragedy is that it apparently did not have big promotional dollars behind it so has never reappeared. Nine stars out of ten.
