Summary
Three brothers join the French Foreign Legion to escape a dark past. But their troubles are quickly forgotten as their courage, duty and devotion is put to the test when they are forced to fight against all odds in this acclaimed film classic. Trapped under the command of a sadistic sergeant deep in the Sahara, they must fight for their lives as they plot mutiny against tyranny and defend a desert fortress against a brutal enemy
