This incredible WWII color film was shot in Tunisia by U.S. Army cameramen, and made with the input of Hollywood legends Darryl Zanuck and John Ford. It follows fresh American troops led by Lt. Gen Mark Clark and Lt. Gen Kenneth Anderson as they join the fight against the Afrika Korps. After arriving at the city of Bone, troops travel overland to the Tunisian Front. Advances are made into the Atlas mountains and enemy forces engaged. Nazi aircraft raid Bone and a hospital train near Souk-el-Khemis. Finally the convoy crosses into Algeria, all the while following protocols to lessen the chances of German air attacks. During the Second Battle of Tebourba, December 22-25, 1942, the Germans are forced to retreat and prisoners taken, but the battle for North Africa is far from over.
