Well-presented war film that chronicles a group of infantrymen during World War II, led by Burgess Meredith, who is corresponded by fellow soldier Ernie Pyle (Robert Mitchum). The troop heads through the ugly battle terrain of Tunisia and Italy, and as they progress, the relationships between one another grow and they become very close during their brutal journey. They also pick up an adorable dog during the trip (which thankfully survives by the end). Quite a nice film to say the least, with good battle scenes and set pieces, and a fine performance by Robert Mitchum that established him as a star. May not be in the same league as "All Quiet on the Western Front," but still worthy of a watch.

I just finished watching it.. Well I wouldn't give it 5 stars but in my book..
3.5 maybe even 4 stars..We really don't know what went on.. We were not there
and hearing from some folks that were in WWII some said it was a little far fetched and a few said it was close to what happened... I guess it all depends were each soldier was at the time of this war.
