Storyline

April 5, 1943: a battalion of the Foreign Legion arrives in El Ksour, Tunisia, to escort a fortune in gold bars to the home front. A German ambush awaits, and all but four die. Thanks to the street smarts of Sergeant Augagneur, the Legionnaires successfully counter attack. The bank manager and his seductive wife arrive, and so does a German lieutenant, whom the French arrest. Augagneur wants to steal the gold; warrant officer Mahuzard wants to do his duty. A series of alliances form and break apart, the group dwindles in number, and the gold heads south toward Betahoua. But in whose possession? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The better Legionaire !!
29 December 2001 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This is a Movie playing in World War II with Legionaires,it`s not even the best Movie Belmondo ever did,but it`s worth having a look at it. Jean-Paul Belmondo plays his typical ironic,charming and sporting role as he ever did(in the late 70`s and 80`s).There`s a lot of Action in it some Kind of humor and in my opinion tense,all in all for me it`s a clear 8.
