What could have been an inspring tale of heroism is dragged down into of men acting on base instincts. Robert Vaughn's character is surprisingly well balanced - he is more likable to the Amnerican soldiers. The movie, based on the book of the same title by Ken Hechler, deviates greatly when it comes to Segal and Gazzara. The soldiers of the 9th Armored Division are portrayed as base, slovenly, and ill disciplined. Read Hechler's book and get the true story of these men from the Greatest Generation.
