||A rare gem among war films.|
I saw this movie in 1977. It was the first film directed by an American that showed how many German soldiers viewed the war, and fought only for survival and friendship, not for nazism. The action scenes are goose bumpers, especially with the cameramen moving behind the men. The merits of this film is that it was very well done, it is anti-stereotypical. As a comment,at the end of the movie all the members of the german plattoon who died appear one by one, and they all seem to march to eternity. This is a strong reminiscence of "All Quiet in the Wesern Front", perhaps the best antiwar movie of all time.

||outstanding and real|
A virtually unheard of war movie that should have been labeled a "classic" Tough and honest, with plenty of action. More important, it has a strong storyline.

||A "must see"|
Terrific acting and directing was done in this picture. A very different type of war movie, but a very effective one.

This movie is one of the few which shows not all Germans were die hard Nazis. Excellent way they showed the true horrors of the Eastern Front and how no mercy was given on either side. Basicly about a glory seeker/coward who will even kill his own men to win a medal he does not deserve. Only the tough antinazi sargent is in his way. All other films show the Germans as ruthless murderers not soldiers called fight for their country. How many Americans fought for the Democrats or Republicans. This movie is a must see.

||A Medal for Cross Of Iron|
Gritty war movie with some fine character actors... very enjoyable for those who enjoy this 'type' of film... A fine movie for it's time, (and an excellant part by James Coburn, a favorite actor of mine) and a member of my personal Top 100 Movie List, as if that makes a difference! Enjoy.
