It follows the actual British 8th army and Italian documented records of the account, which we get to see refreshingly this time from the Italians side.
This movie was produced as a low budget production portraying the heroic and desperate attempts of a bersaglieri regiment to stop the advancing hordes of allied armour from decimating the outnumbered Italian Infantry and remaining light tank division in the last few days of the battle of El alamein.
The great thing about this flick is that we actually get to see the Bersaglieri and ariete (two of Italy's elite divisions) in action.
Unfortunately for many the actual feats of bravery achieved by the Italians in WWII have been kept out of the English press for propaganda reasons for many a year and only recently are we finding modern historians acknowledging the Italians true fighting spirit during that war in better researched well balanced publications about WW2 using solid sources from both sides..
The ending to this movie is indeed awesome, facing superior armour we see the bad leadership that caused the Italians to eventually lose this conflict in the desert in effect, we also get to see some tank battle strategy in action.Read more ›
