I actually think this is better than the more famous Dirty Dozen Robert Aldrich made three years before.It`s tough and cynical from the outset with some memorable performances(Caine is on top form)and sharp crisp dialogue.Robertson is also good as the reluctant Yank, who expecting a cushy war,unbelievably ends up on combat patrol with a bunch of unwashed,unfed,unsynpathetic limeys.The patrol gradually gets worn down by infighting and the Japanese take a toll during the trek home.Memorable scenes include the patrol being taunted by the Japanese via hidden loudspeakers in the jungle and the unforgettable ending as the survivors make their dash.Brilliant film and needs a nice dvd special edition.
