Typical Italian war movie of the period, 5 May 2001
Author: John Seal from Oakland CA

If you like Italian war movies of the 60s, you'll enjoy this one. British soldiers are stranded behind enemy lines during a heated desert battle in WW II. They hook up with some beautiful (decidedly un-British looking) nurses and try to fight their way back to safety. There's enough desert grit, gunfire, and exploding tanks to keep action fans happy.
