This is a superb household movie although my four yr previous niece cherished this movie however my son didn’t have the same enthusiasm. Maybe one for the women! The movie: The Desert Rats (1953) shows how the allied troops had been capable of hold Tobruk for an incredible 242 days and provide Hitler with one of his earliest defeats. The Desert Rats stars a very younger Richard Burton and James Mason as Rommel. Mason had already starred as Rommel in an earlier World War II film referred to as The Desert Fox.
