In a film which is considered by many to be the best WWII movie ever made, director Lewis Milestone (All Quiet on the Western Front) delivers a first-rate and unflinchingly honest character study of men at war. Action-filled with a blood-curdling final assault, this compelling war drama retains realistic dialogue and moving acting from Dana Andrews and the entire cast.

Sgt Tyne (Dana Andrews) becomes the leader of his platoon after their lieutenant is killed in battle near Salerno, Italy. Reluctantly, he guides his men through combat zones, incurring heavy losses as they see action unlike anything they have experienced. On their march to Rome the one stumbling block is a farmhouse, where the Germans have mounted a defence. As the platoon repels the enemy in brutal skirmish after skirmish, a special bond forms between them that is summed up in the phrase repeated like a mantra: "Nobody dies".
