This is a low budget, black and white, contemporary film about Great Britain in the Korean War. Or rather a small group of British soldiers on patrol behind enemy lines in the Korean War, It is a fairly conventional "men at war" story. It's value lies in seeing the war from the British point of view. We see so little of America in this war much less the others who fought there. It is comparable to Samuel Fuller's "The Steel Helmet" in that it achieves a lot with very little. And for fans of British actors of that era there is Stanley Baker, Harry Andrews (always great), a young Robert Shaw and you will not see a younger Michael Caine anywhere.

It was ok - not the best. Did not match up to some of the other war stories/movies seen in the past.

My hill was in Viet Nam, and this looked as real as the real thing. I like to British view point, unlike so many American versions.

Worth watching, there are not a lot of movies about that terrible war. This movie helps a person understand a little more of what those boys went through.

Interesting to see a Korean war film from the British perspective. Not very realistic at all, but the dialog was good and saw a few young actors who became A listers later in their carreers. For the eclectic.
