A fictional account of the First Special Service Force, the joint Canadian-US commando group of World War II under the command of Colonel Robert T. Frederick. The Canadians are the best the Canadian Army has to offer: spit and polish experienced soldiers with multiple skills. The Americans are the dregs of the US Army: outsiders and troublemakers who lack any discipline. Over time, Friedrich forms a uniform, highly competent force. After training for a commando operation in Norway, Frederick must move quickly to hold the unit together after the operation is canceled. They are sent to Italy, where they excel in combat.
Unique movie from 1968, a real hit in the cinemas in it's times. First of all, I need to say that The Devil's Brigade is not like the other Drama movies made according to the usual scheme. In the comparison to latest cinema movies, The Devil's Brigade is doing really good work. I couldn't forget about the great cast, Cliff Robertson and Claude Akins really did their work perfectly. Andrew V. McLaglen is a director who stays behind all the great work and thanks to him The Devil's Brigade looks as it looks.
