An examination of the malevolent London underworld with its despicable criminal underground. Ray (Mick Rossi) just finished an eight-year prison sentence after getting set up. Now he is back on the streets to settle the score.
In 1941, as part of an effort to remain strictly neutral, the Dublin government made a deal with both Berlin and London whereby any soldier, sailor or pilot captured on Irish soil, whether of German or Allied forces, would be interned for the duration of the war. What the Irish failed to tell was that they would intern everybody in the same camp. It is here that Canadian pilot Miles Keogh and German pilot Rudolph Von Stegenbeck meet after a fight in which both their planes were downed. Outside the camp, both fall in love with the same woman, an independent Irishwoman who refuses to take sides in their private little war. Written by

This was a great movie of the hardships of the pilots during the war. It was a moving story that brought me to tears and laughter throughout the movie. It was beautifully done with all the actors involved. I thought Bill Campbell brought a real life feeling to the character that he portrayed. He is of course an excellent actor. It was almost like being there along side of those men who were there. I have watched this movie on several occasions, because I was able to purchase this one. It is rare that such a moving picture is released, but this one is surely a keeper. All of those who get the chance to view this movie, certainly should. I think it should receive an academy award, but who am I. I suggest this movie should be watched if at all possible. A few months ago, HBO had an airing of this wonderful movie, and I was unable to resist watching it at more than one occasion.
