Branded a coward for surrendering his New Mexico fort to the Confederates without firing a shot, a Union colonel attempts to redeem himself by leading a band of condemned prisoners on a suicide mission to recapture it.
Nice piece of mellow lefty Italo-Yugoslavian agit-prop from the late 1960s. Victorious Allied troops face the daunting task of dealing with the aftermath of WWII. Canadian soldiers, led by a career-minded captain, are put in charge of an internment camp for captured Nazi soldiers. When the Nazis organize their little hovel in traditional teutonic fashion, their keepers are impressed. Things get weird quickly, however, when the Nazis desire to execute two soldiers for desertion.
One nice surprise: soundtrack courtesy of Ennio Morricone.
The DVD appears to be little more than a sloppy transfer from a bad videotape.
