Watched this last night on Netflix:
OK movie, gives the inside story on the desperate times. The part about the Yamamoto shoot down is an anachronism though.
Interesting to see Dennis Weaver as a young man.
The news coverage of the North Africa campaign to date strikes me overly optimistic. That must have contributed to the shock when the stuff hit the fan.
