This movie is from the Mill Creek 50 pack of Combat Classics. The movie itself is directed by Bitto Albertini. Who dealt in the Euro spy cinema, Spaghetti Western Cinema and the Italian War Combat Movies along with many other type films over 80 in total. This is one of the better Italian war films I've seen, with a good cast and a very interesting plot line.
Really this movie has two war fronts, the first is North Africa 1943, where American Army Rangers led by Capt. George Vincent (played by Guy Madison) their Mission is to blow up the two large guys that are holding British and American troops back, I believe this film uses actual footage from a well operated German bunker. The German troops are led by Major Heinrich Meinike played by Venantino Venantini. So as you can see this movie has these 2 fine actors and many more. After blowing up the guns the Americans are captured and led across the desert my Maj Meinike, but the Americans and Germans have to join forces to survive. When they finally stumble on a German camp they separate but the German vows to kill the Americans if they ever meet again, Boom story shifts to France 1944 when a British Coronal is captured and American Army Rangers must once again go in for the rescue. Of course the two meet again, but you will have to watch this film to find out the ending as I will not give it away. It is a 4 Star War Movie.
