Rarely handled topic, weak characters.
28 March 2002 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

The prisoner bataillons of the german army were basically troops,

where the soldiers were sent, who could not be tolerated in nazi

germany´s army - for there political backgrounds or other reasons

and confessions. In general they were labeled as criminals.

These commandos had to accomplish most dangerous missions. Many times these missions ended up in "Himmelfahrtskommandos", that led these men straight to their

graves. Bataillon 999 tells the story of these man. Interesting real

live background, though the characters described have their

weaknesses. The story of this movie is from a book by german

writer Konsalik, also known for other novels on worldwar 2.
