Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"A gripping bit of cinema"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole

‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Recreates this complicated and tragic military venture with breathtaking sweep, historical accuracy and sober-eyed humanism."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice

"Fantastic WW2 epic with a 1970's "all star" cast."
‑ Brian Mckay, eFilmCritic.com
