When he tells the com­man­der that the way ahead is clear, he is ig­nored. by the time the de­ci­sion is made to ad­vance, the Ger­mans have ar­rived in great strength and some of the war’s most sav­age fight­ing en­sues ....

Watch out for amer­i­can tanks mas­querad­ing as Ger­man panz­ers! yep, it’s one of dino’s fa­mous bar­gain-base­ment “epics”.
