100 min

and finally, Istanbul.

And there, they will establish

over 10 years,

20, a century, if necessary

all over the Middle East...

the new Fourth Reich.

You will take 12 general prisoners

convicted and sentenced to death

or to long terms of imprisonment.

You will train and qualify

the prisoners

and deliver them secretly

behind the lines.

You will attack and destroy

your assigned target.

Any breach of security,

any failure of discipline,

and the prisoners go right back

where they came from

for summary execution of sentence.

I want to speak

to Private Stern alone.

That's an order.

You looking for another

Dirty Dozen, major?

No, no, no. I'm just biding my

time until I become general

and get the war over.

Now, what happened?

Got into a fight with an officer

in a bar.

Hit him.

Broke his jaw,

sent him to the hospital.

Oh, that's very shrewd. Now,

what did he say to upset you?

We got into

a discussion about race.

I told him he belonged

on the other side.

I see. So you wind up

in a military prison again

and you're facing another

court-martial. Now, look.

You know...

I'll give you a chance to beat this

thing and get back to the war.

What do you say?

Do you want it or not?

I don't know, major.

You get a lot of men killed.

You kill a lot of good people.

And I don't know anymore whether

it's good versus evil with you.

Maybe it's just evil versus evil.

I'll find your keeper.

Let's go!

Take a walk with me, major.

I've got some important

information for you.

Yes, sir.

Nice morning, lieutenant.

Yes. Yes, it is.

You work for the general, huh?

That's right.

You've been with

Major Wright before?

That's right.

And I made it back.

War's over for me, lieutenant.

Well, I wouldn't say that the war

is altogether over for you, hmm.
