Goofs

The helmet of the Lieutenant (played by Ken Lynch) has a vertical white stripe on the back. In 1943, the US Army did not use the white stripes during the North Africa Campaign (vertical for officers, horizontal for NCO's). These were not added to the combat helmets until just before D-Day in 1944. See more »

Good low-budget war-fare
19 June 1999 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

A young soldier (Bakalyan) feels he is jinxed...can never do anything right.....fellow soldiers agree with him, and persecute him in combat. Good low-budget war flick, featuring "unknown" cast. Of course our anti-hero redeems himself in the bullet laden conclusion.
