Where are the partisans?

Where are the partisans?






Coming in on target.

Okay, go.

Chicken Little to Red Dog.

The chickens are in the nest.

Schwalberg, bring him in, alive.

- He's bleeding.

- So he has a cut.

But it's like my mama used to say,

"You pray to the holy saints,

they'll send you what you want."

Maybe he'll say, "No, Aldo."

Maybe he won't want to.

He's gonna have to.

- Come on!

- You sure he isn't dead?

All right?

All right.

I want every farm,

every village in the district

turned inside out.

And you will inform the people that

anyone even suspected of helping this man

will immediately be turned over to the SS.

You don't think your commandant

will object to that, Corporal?

No, sir.

Hermann, Ehrlich. All right.

As soon as it's light, you continue

your search of the woods.

Yes, sir.

Well, Corporal,

what is your expert opinion?

This power pack is strong enough

to carry well over 300 miles.


A pity we didn't have

such equipment in North Africa.

Yes, sir.

What were they going to blow up

with all this dynamite?

The railroad depot, town hall,

SS headquarters,

the Grimaldi tunnel, the Della Norte dam?

He won't be blowing up anything now.

I don't think we should underestimate

a man who parachutes into trees

and can still outrun three able-bodied

soldiers, eh, Schwalberg?

Captain, they will be waiting

for you at the headquarters.

Yes, yes. We mustn't keep the SS

and the General Staff

out of our little guessing game.

You might ask Ehrlich to keep an eye out

for that new shotgun my father sent me.

It seems to have disappeared.

He's been out a long time.

But how can you tell?

He's so big.

Hey, soldier.

He's as cold as ice.

- Then how come he's sweating?

- Maybe he's dead.

What are you thinking

he's dead for all the time?

There, you feel his heart?

I'm going to get a dottore.

You know how many Nazis

are out there looking for him?

For him, not for us.

I didn't go through

all this trouble just to bury him.


Trucks across the river.

- The fire?

- It's out.

- Silvio, let's go.

- How about me? Listen.

See? I know them all.

- You're too young, Carlo.

- Let him come.

He's got to learn sometime. Dino!

You better stay here, in case he wakes up.


It is manufactured in the United States

and is designated Composition C.

It can be set off from a distance

with electric wiring and a primer cord,

or with automatic detonators

plugged into the plastic mass.

The detonators, I am told,

have not been found.

The missing man has them, no doubt.

That was our assumption, too, Colonel.

It's obvious they were sent to destroy

a major military installation.

But which one?

The Aircraft Warning Complex at Verranova,

the Grimaldi tunnel, the Della Norte dam?

The Della Norte dam,

if I may say so, gentlemen.

Thank you for your opinion, Captain.

But six men or even 12 blowing up

the Della Norte dam,

what a charming fantasy.

The obvious target is the Grimaldi tunnel.

I would give orders

that appropriate security measures

- be taken to forestall...

- Colonel.

My apologies to the SS.

If they dynamite the tunnel,

they can tie up traffic for eight hours, 10.

Maybe a day if

they knocked out the ventilators.

And if they blew up the dam?

They'd flood the whole valley.

We couldn't move troops.

We could anticipate the major allied

advance, Captain Von Hecht.

The fhrer has given orders

to drive their armies into the sea.

I don't expect them

to be waiting on the beach.

Has Captain Von Hecht

been named Corps Intelligence Officer?
