Eh, who gave you


We're not on guard duty.

You do, swine!

I was reading at the paper that

the Americans have occupied Sicily.

...and now they've disembarked

in Calbria too.

If you keep reading the paper

they'll disembark here too.

- What for?

- For eating Polenta.

No offense, sergeant...

...but they were able to choose

the best pasta and wine.

Enough, then.

Bunch of idles, always fussing.

I'll straighten them up.

Permiso. (Exucse me) (May I come in?)

Lieutenant, you have to take

disciplinary measures.

Sergeant, do it yourself or

shut up.

What time is it?

It's twenty past four.

We're preening ourselves,


My girlfriend's arriving today.

Great day, today.

Yes, great day, she's coming with

my mother-in-law, anyway...

...let's hope the changing

of the guard doesn't take long.

- Who's next on guard today?

I think...

Lieutenant Innocenzi.

- March faster!

- One, two!

- One, two!

Squad... stop!

- Left... Now!

- Lining up... right!

Codegato, I still see your nose.

- You think you have a nice

profile, eh?

- Lines... At ease!

- Sergeant Fornaciari...

- Yes, sir!

This platoon is very tired...

...they have to wake up

and you have to wake up.

I don't want you

to make a fool of myself.

That's why... after the shift

at the coast,

you'll come back

to individual drill.

- Did I make myself clear?

And try to keep your uniform

accordingly woth your rank.

- Do you know what you look like?

- You look scruffy.

- Lieutenant Innocenzi!

- Yes, Sir!

- Here the Colonel is.


- Platoon... Attention!

First platoon,

second troop...

- Let's relieve the coast guard

- At ease!

- Platton... At ease!

I do look scruffy.

Look at you.

A circular has arrived this morning.

It recommends...

...the men sing while

they march.

Yes, Colonel.

We don't have a great repertory.

Just "Mum, I'm coming home again".

- All right, It's OK for march.

- Yes, Sir.


- Guard, fall in!

- Attention!

- Guards...!

- Present... arms!

Step... Squad...


Switch the channel!

...to avoid further damages...

- What is it?

- I don't know.

...the impossibility

of keeping on fighting...

What does he say?

- He's asked the General for an armistice...

- Armistice.

...to the Commander in Chief

of the Allies.

The petition has been accepted.

Therefore, all


...against the

anglo-american forces...

...must immediately stop

on Italian's side.

Likewise, any other attacks must

be repelled.

We've sent a report to

Marshal Pietro Badoglio

- Armistice?

- Badoglio.


There is an armistice!

The war is over!


But, are you sure you

heard it well?

Yes, Lieutenant,

the radio said it.

Run to Colonel's house and tell him.

I'll call the command.

Yes, Sir.

Hello central,

put me through to the command.

Hello, Second Lieutenant Ricardi of the Second

Group, to the Officer.

Hello, what's happening? The radio's

broadcast a Marshal Badoglio's communiqu.

- You heard it too?.

- So?

Then, there are no

orders or something?

- Put me the officer,

you fool!

Hello, hello, yes, I learnt it

just a minute ago...

...do you know who said it?

The Germans.

- Fall in.

- Hold on, here's the Colonel.

Lieutenant Di Faccio's

on the phone.

- Of the position.

- Really?

Colonel, yes, the Germans are outside,

with two tanks...

That's why I left

my position.

Wait a moment. - What did

they say about the Command?

Nothing, Colonel, they know

the same as us..

Lieutenant Di Faccio, I'll call you later.

I'll ask the Army for orders.
