Men in War

Time Out says

One of the best of the lost patrol movies, set in Korea in 1950, bleakly anti-heroic and prefiguring Milestone's Pork Chop Hill in the bitter irony of its climactic assault on a hill. Beautifully staged by Mann with his usual eye to landscape, and an intriguing sub-theme querying the nature of military authority as Ryan's lieutenant, wearily devoting himself to shepherding his men through alive, comes into conflict with - while forced to rely on the battle skills of - Aldo Ray's sergeant, whose sole interest, pursued with dog-like devotion, lies in trying to save a shellshocked colonel (mad but still a symbol of authority).
