This movie in every respect approaches sheer perfection. It is most certainly one of the best and most powerful roles every played by Gregory Peck. I've seen it at least three or four times over the years and it gets better every time.
At first I assumed this was a theatrically released feature film because the production values were so good I.E. location shooting, accurate uniforms and vehicles, and BIG name actors.....but then I noticed fadeouts where commercials were supposed to be inserted! Was I surprised! Other reviewers mention the music (yes-overbearing and hyper-loud) and the films' length (yes it was somewhat long and repetitive) but it addresses a little known subject from WW2 that is handled here with accuracy and a minimum of dramatic license. Probably not of much interest to the mass public and sort of an odd subject for a TV movie of the early 1980's but worth a look for the performances of Peck and especially Plummer 3 stars

Great story, but very long and drawn out. Gregory Peck is always good. Obviously made for television. Decent supporting cast. Nice location setting. The score is overbearing and interferes with the story.
Great true story
Historically accurate and very inspiring..especially the epilog.
