Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 06/16/1992
"...[Robert Montgomery] gives the best performance of his career..."
Uncut - 05/01/2006
5 stars out of 5 -- "Ford's experiences in combat documentary are clear, but what's surprising for modern viewers is its measured, even downbeat tone....This is a nuanced and at times fatalistic study of men at arms..."
Ultimate DVD - 07/01/2006
3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] very watchable monochrome WWII piece....[With] a strong supporting cast..."
