REVIEWS

Review by anonymous (posted on 12-May-2005)

I saw this movie on our history channel in Canada but it was under the title The Immortal battalion or regiment I think. I enjoyed the movie, I have always enjoyed WWII movies produced in Britain, (Spitfire, the Cruel Sea). I've been trying to get a copy of this movie.
