Richard Burton plays a Scottish Army officer put in charge of a disparate band of ANZAC troops on the perimeter of Tobruk with the German Army doing their best to dislodge them.
The film was regarded as far inferior to The Desert Fox: The Story of Rommel (1951).
If your men are as cocksure as you are, MacRoberts, they might just get through.
When the captured MacRoberts requests a doctor the German soldiers calls for the "Oberarzt". An "Oberarzt" only can be found in civilian hospitals. The military rank would be "Oberstarzt" referring to a military surgeon in the rank of a Colonel. Otherwise he could have meant "Oberstabsarzt" which would have been a Major then.
