(Gray)
Global rating: 9.3

The unit's mission is to reach a downed recon aircraft (P-38), rescue the pilot if alive,
and get back with the aircraft's camera and film of the German positions. At the
beginning, we see that a German patrol, led by Sgt. Beckman (James Caan) has been
sent on a parallel mission to capture the pilot and the film. Saunders and Beckman
play a constant cat-and-mouse game, each trying to outguess, outsmart, and out-
maneuver the other. Beckman, a very cagey veteran German non-com, nearly wins.
Instead, he loses his life, his entire patrol, the mission, and his "game" with Saunders
at the end. Saunders loses two men out of the patrol (contrasted with twelve of the
Germans), and gets hot when Kirby tries to tell him how Saunders was so much
smarter "than that German sergeant." Saunders never thinks of losing a man as a
"win."

where there are three very pretty French ladies, who are the objects of desire not only
