An excellent film about courage, duty, and honor
I remember seeing this film as a child, but only recently did I get a copy of the DVD and experience it as an adult. Being a student of history and in the military, war films have to go a long way to impress me. This one doesn't let you down. In some ways I think it does a better job realistically portraying war than some modern films I've seen. This small patrol of US Army soldiers must contend with lethal sniper fire, air raids, and overwhelming numbers of Japanese soldiers. One other thing it does a good job at is fully representing the diverse social spectrum of our country. For a film made in 1943, that is quite an accomplishment. Bravo!
