This German-Italian-Spanish production viewed the Algerian War of Independence through an anti-war lens. A commander of the French Foreign Legion takes his battle-scarred men to search for an Algerian nationalist leader. Though successful in their mission, their escape plan falls apart. The unit treks through hostile territory only to discover that their sacrifice was for naught.
