JWD: Battle Force (1978)

‘Battle Force’; now, this was a war movie for my taste,

a so called ‘Macaroni Combat’..in other Words; italian war movies made in the60’s-80’s inspired by, or rather trying to copy, american blockbusters (now classics) like ‘the dirty dozen. This movie is directed by one of my fave italian directors, Umberto Lenzi who are mostly known for his cannibal movies and euro-crime flix of the 70’s and on the casting list is big actor names like Henry Fonda, John Huston, Samantha Eggar and spaghetti western veteran Guiliano Gemma. I even saw this in italian audio dub to get the real macaroni combat atmosphere. The story is almost the same as ‘Raid On Rommel’ (us).
