Summary Note "James Mason and James Coburg star in this gripping account of a doomed German platoon facing annihilation at Russian hand during 1943, who discover that their instinct for war is greater than their instinct for survival. While the enemy attack, two officers fuel the conflict with their hell-bent list for personal vindictiveness and glory - all part of the greater absurdity called war." -- Case slip.
