One of the Best War Films Ever

John Sturges directs one of the quintessential war films - a movie that juggles a large cast of characters, while still giving them all memorable screentime. The film tells a true story without pulling any punches and doesn't replace a brilliant combination of triumph and melancholy with a Hollywood ending. The score and cinematography are beautiful and serve to underline the action, but the talented, multifaceted cast is the real attraction here.
