But they're defaulters. Drunks, deserters, thieves. The most unreliable treacherous men in the battalion.
Maj. Roy Bell:
The scraping of the barrel. You won't find any men more expendable than those, Colonel.

Acceptable low-budget war film
I've just watched "Tarnished Heroes" on YouTube and found it acceptable enough, given the obviously limited budget. The other two reviews here on IMDB say it all, or most of it.
I groaned when the soldiers discovered a young French girl in the church where they were holed up, with an instant romance ensuing between her and Major Bell as Germans trapped the squad inside. And there was rather too much extended soul-searching and soul-baring, some of which involved the besieged men sorting out individual and collective issues and not keeping watch on what might have been developing outside the church.
Several of the German soldiers died in quite a realistic manner, reeling back from gunshots, in contrast to the almost languid collapsing one sees too often in war films.
