Powerful WWII story that follows a war time correspondent and his relationship with an infantry unit making their way through Italy in the later stages of the war. No real leads to speak of but a tight cast of young actors well supported by veterans Meredith and Mitchum (in his only Oscar nominated turn). The film often feels authentic and captures that weary but determined war set. Well directed by Wellman.
