Not bad
4 September 1999 | by (Burnet, Texas (USA)) – See all my reviews

Though probably perceived as a cheesy mini series, this has a lot of good performances, notably Max Gail as a career NCO and Weaver as a negative stereotype of a career officer. It is also fairly faithful to history, something I found refreshing...
