Early Fuller war film full of the usual ballsy direction that is better than The Iron Cross but not as good as The Big Red One. The racial elements, while intriguing and not too overbearing, end up feeling a little tacked on.

If you liked this classic as much as I do,.. then be sure check out 'A Walk in the Sun' and 'The Young Lions', which are also very good war movies.

Samuel Fuller had a way to show how war effects the typical soldier without the Hollywood blood and guts of today. He shows how combat can change someone's view on life, their fellow soldiers and the people of the country they are in, in a very short time. This is my second favorite Fuller film just after The Big Red One. He even mentions the 1/16th again in this movie.
