Entertaining Italiano twist
21 October 2005 | by (World Traveler) – See all my reviews

OK I know, it's a cheesy flick with a low budget, but I really enjoyed it. The Italian tanks coming into the battle was awesome! I always play this game called Panzer General and my favorite moves are trying to amass Italian troops against the Allies just to test my ability. I'm glad the Italians were run by very VERY incompetent Officers because they could have been a real asset (more so) to the Germans. This is the story of an elite Italian Infantry unit (the Bersaglieri). In all, six of the 12 total Bersaglieri regiments fought in North Africa, compiling an excellent combat record. More than once, Bersaglieri units fought to the last man to hold a position while German units ran away. This movie tells of one of those engagements, and the first time I saw it and what armament they had to face a dozen tanks, I was really entertained and so will you! Try to get a decent print though because I was so desperate to see this one time that I bought it on tape and it was horrible, the DVD was really bad but at least it was watchable. It's the only one of it's kind that I've seen although I loved movies like Stalingrad (the BW version) that showed some of the Romanian army's in action. Interesting for war film buffs and recommended.
