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.

Good action war film, a group of German Jews team up with the British Desert rats and smash Rommles Fuel dump
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)
