Abstract

This classic American comedy injects military incompetence into Cold War politics. When two best friends sign up for the army for the fun of it, they bring chaos and lack of discipline to basic training. Their shenanigans continue when assigned to Italy, where an A.W.O.L. trip to Germany almost starts World War III.
