Storyline

September 1942 - With Erwin Rommel's Afrika Korps on the march through Egypt, a British special forces unit, composed of German Jews who serve with the British despite the mutual resentment between both, kidnap a Canadian officer who is an expert topographer and who is held prisoner by the Vichy French in Algeria. The officer, Donald Craig, must negotiate a company of British and German-Jewish commandos through 800 miles of the Sahara to aide a pending amphibious landing against Tobruk's massive fuel storage base - a mission that sees one impediment after another, and which discovers an undetected German armored force ready to win the battle of Egypt.

Quotes

Major Craig: I'll say one thing for the Germans, they certainly know how to build an engine.
Captain Berghman: It doesn't cost much, either, when they use slave labor. Two hundred Jew power, Major.
Major Craig: We all know what's going on in Europe.
Captain Berghman: Well, if you do, if you really do, there must be a little of the Jew in you.
Major Craig: They say there's a little of the Jew in everyone.
Captain Berghman: Jah, a little of the Nazi, too.

Good action war film, a group of German Jews team up with the British Desert rats and smash Rommles Fuel dump
19 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An enjoyable action film see's George Peppard in one of his better roles as a German Jew (Bergman) who is now working along side a British commando unit led by Col Harper brilliantly played by Nigel Green, Helping them on their suicide mission to destroy Field Marshall Rommles fuel dump is an American Middle east expert Rock Hudson (Major Craig ). After freeing Mjor from an Italian destroyer the unit sets off from Algria to Tobruk crossing 800 miles of Nazi mine infested desert some nifty action set pieces and some great sarcasm the troop make it to Tobruk where they set about there mission of destruction, tight direction and good acting from Peppard and Green lift this otherwise standard war flick to a higher level, also nice to see Jack Watson as the RSM a role that no one plays better (played the same role in Wild geese)
