One of the best of the lost patrol movies, set in Korea in 1950, bleakly anti-heroic and prefiguring Milestone's Pork Chop Hill in the bitter irony of its climactic assault on a hill.

Grim, harsh, stunningly shot, Mann's Korean War drama is one of the best samplers of its genre.
Mann and Yordan provide a work that lives up to its title, exploring the draining psychological impact of war and its physical rigours, as experienced by two central characters.
