This came from the Dogs O War Collection which is a 10 Film Set Collection. The picture quality was as poor as it can get. I rented this one from Netflix and I am happy I did as I would never purchase this collection. The quality is far worst then anything from Mill Creek or BCI Entertainment. The film itself is about the German Invasion of England with the main goal of knocking out a radar site. I major saves the life of a German who is in a British Officers Uniform. The goal of the Germans kill British Soldiers and take there Uniforms. Intelligence finds out of the German Plan and The Major discovers his new friend and roommate is a German Officer. Many Stills and Cuts in this film, Lowest Star War Movie yet. 2 Stars

A really terrible WWII film (Macaroni Combat film is the proper terminology) from Italian director Enzo G. Castellari, who, nine years later would make another terrible (but when compared with it's predecessor, isn't as bad) war picture, Inglorious Bastards.

This film follows a small group of Nazis posing as British soldiers (led by Italian actor Luigi Pistilli who viewers may recognize from the two pictures he made with Sergio Leone, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly), who infiltrate London during the early days of the war, in order to sabotage the air defense installations. Hot on their trail however is a British Army Captain played by Frederick Stafford, and an Air Marshal played by Van Johnson.

Castellari seems less interested in the thriller elements of the story - the plot doesn't kick in until just over a half-an-hour into the picture, and when it does it still proves to be completely uninteresting - and more with staging scene after scene of over-the-top action that is not in the least bit exciting. Hell, Castellari guns down and blows up so many allied soldiers that if the war had gone the way he depicts it here, Germany would have won the war.
