This unbelievable WWII action film actual portrays the Germans as the good guys!
15 December 2000 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Five German commandos are parachuted into the Sahara desert, and must make their way to Casablanca, where Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin are holding a top-secret meeting. Then, they must kill them! This film is quite bizarre; but it contains alot of action-packed scenes and some good suspense. Worth a good viewing.
