War drama directed by Sydney Pollack and starring Burt Lancaster, Jean-Pierre Aumont and Patrick O'Neal.
Major Abraham Falconer (Lancaster), after an exhausting campaign during the Second World War, leads his tired eight-man squadron to a medieval castle in the Ardennes Forest of Belgium hoping for some rest.
Count Maldorais (Aumont), the owner of the castle, welcomes the soldiers and even encourages Falconer to impregnate his young wife as Maldorais himself is impotent.
The rest of the squadron have escapades of their own and are beginning to settle down to enjoy themselves when the Germans invade the forest and the troops have to resume fighting.
