"Interesting re-enactment of the desert campaign during WWII as seen through the experiences of one small company in the British army. A motley band of Commonwealth troops of mixed personalities led by Captain MacRoberts played by Richard Burton. Through the fire and hell of battling the Desert Fox and his war-hardened troops, MacRoberts by lifting their spirits and their morale eventually melds his men into a fighting fit group of warriors. The Desert Rats is a very realistic war movie, present"
