Based on a true story its the untold story of Italian World War II POW"S in Jan 1946.

The phone lines get cut, and the two men realize they are completely isolated from the outside world. It is up to each man now to escape the camp.An untold and rarely known fact of US held Italian POW"S Written by
As an alternative in the WWII POW genre, 'The Good War' ('TGW,' 2004)' provides a unique perspective on an Axis POW camp in the US (Texas). Shot in Bulgaria and Utah, 'TGW' likely will not win the hearts/minds of lovers of the genre; however, based on a true story, it provides an engaging, if not interesting, perspective that has been somewhat overlooked. Recommended mostly for the die-hard fans of the POW genre and the curious WWII genre viewer. For similar themes consider: 'The Mckenzie Break' (1970); 'Stalag 17' (1953); 'The Incident' (1990); 'The Bridge on the River Kwai' (1957); 'The Colditz Story' (1957); 'Escape To Athena' (1979); & 'The Great Escape' (1963). Also consider: 'A Man Escaped' (1957); 'So weit die Fusse tragen' (TV 1959); 'Paradise Road' (1997); 'What Did You Do During the War Daddy' (1966); 'Prisoner of War' (1954); 'Empire of the Sun' (1987); 'Blood Oath' (or 'Prisoners of the Sun', 1990); 'King Rat' (1965); 'Hart's War' (2002); 'Ivan, Marie og verdenshistorien' (1992); 'Victory' (1981); 'Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence' (1983); 'POW' (TV, 2003); 'As Far As My Feet Will Carry Me' (2003); 'The Secret of Blood Island' (1964); 'The Great Raid' (2005); & 'Von Ryan's Express' (1965).
