Pretty interesting war film despite the well-grooved plot involving an experienced sergeant leading a squad of young, inexperienced infantry soldiers into battle. Presumably set in Italy (some combat sequences were lifted from the Audie Murphy flick "To Hell and Back") the story centers upon the relationship that develops between the squad leader, Cooley (James Dury) and one of his charges, Hacker (played by Steve Carlson).
Square-jawed and rugged, Drury was born for his role. Best known for the TV western "The Virginian," it's a shame Drury wasn't in more combat films. Carlson is fine as a surly private but he is overshadowed by the wise-cracking (and sometimes irritating) Jon Daly who plays the unit comedian.
Norman Fell has a tiny role in this film and a young Robert Pine is interesting as sensitive trooper. Look closely for Kent "Adam 12" McCord (billed under his real name, Kent McWhirter) who pops up here and there as a lieutenant. It might have been more interesting to cast McCord in the role of Hacker.
