Too good to miss, 15 March 2002
Author: shultz6 ( from Sydney Australia

A most remarkable film. Made for TV and even though it is no longer available to buy, you can find it at your video store to rent. Here we have one of Peppards' finest performances. He may not have been the best actor of his day, but this role is perfect for Peppard. I have watched this film every few months since finding it a few years ago. Each viewing is as enjoyable as the first. Michael York puts in an average performance as Rommel, and Debra Raffin does okay. Peppard however carries the day. He plays an American Colonel working for the British OSE. (Operations Special Executive) I imagine this was the forerunner or wartime version of MI6 where James Bond works. Most of the film is set on the Channel Islands, occupied by the Germans for most of WW2. Our hero must extract or kill an American washed up there, who knows all the details of the D-Day landings, before the Germans interigate him. The movie doesn't even seem like three hours at all. The time goes fast and I can hardly wait to watch it again. Do yourself a favour and watch this most entertaining war drama.
