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.

Trivia

Martin Sheen starred in The Execution of Private Slovik (1974), as the only American soldier to be executed for desertion since the Civil War. While the movie appears to depict the execution scene as happening during the Christmas season (singing of carols), in fact the execution occurred on 31 January 1945. See more »

One of the best war movies
11 December 2004 | by (Manila) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in a late spot more than 15 years ago and I hung onto its title. I've been looking for a copy of it since. The scene that I cannot forget was when Vince Edward's unit stumbled onto concentration camp prisoners escaping into the forest. One of the prisoners stop and vaguely making out the soldiers realize that these are not Germans. The prisoner approaches Vince Edwards, kneels and kisses Vince Edwards hand.

Regarding the ending, wasn't it a statement of how Germany caused two great countries to unite to defeat it and in the end caused the cold war. Remember, the American soldier was so angry because his German girl friend was raped by Russian soldiers. I don't think this is an antiwar movie. War movies aren't just about shooting and killing. They're about soldiers too.
