In 1942, a French commando unit destroyed a German gas depot in Tobruk. The four soldiers that survived escaped into the desert and were soon lost.

Of the many movies about the North African campaign this is among the best in my opinion, though the subtitles could have been better. But the strangeness of French and Germans fighting against one another in North Africa comes across well here, better than most.

This is is awful ! ...when I got this NYPL disc home and put this movie in the DVD says: "NOT FORMATTED FOR THIS REGION" !!?? ( And it says "Region #1", on the DVD jacket !!?) I have watched a thousand other New York Public Library DVDs on my Panasonic Region 1 DVD Player,.. but this one makes it more than TWO DOZEN that have come up as "NOT FORMATTED..." etc. !

I really was looking forward to to seeing this one. Its very disappointing !

WHY is the New York Public Library buying DVD's that are "NOT FORMATTED.." to be viewed in this region ?

Has this ever happened to anyone else out there ??

This movie is a bit slow at times; and following the dialogue is not helped by barely visible English sub-titles. The desert and the war is full of surprises!
