Storyline

War has no victors, only survivors. Killing destroys the killers as well as the killed; because it murders decency, self-respect and ultimately life itself. The story follows in the footsteps of a squad of young American solders from the early days of the Battle of Britain, through the fierce fighting in Italy and France, to the uneasy peace of Berlin.

A Great Film, Butchered then lost!
30 May 2004 | by (North Huntingdon, PA, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

A few weeks after this film was released to mixed reviews it was briefly withdrawn from the theaters. A great deal of wonderful footage was cut including two major episodes, and then the adulterated version was quietly returned to theatrical distribution. I feel so very fortunate to have had the chance to see the very atmospheric, thoughtful and original film which was "The Victors" prior to this radical re-editing. The cut version is not bad, but quite ordinary compared to the original. The question remains: Where is the master negative now? Why is the film unavailable in any video format? What happened to the deleted scenes? Despite the vast cost that went into producing these, were they merely thrown away? I would dearly love to know why no answers to these questions can be found? Does anyone know what happened here?
