The Dirty Dozen is an action adventure movie about a hardened army major who leads a group of convicted soldiers on a suicide mission during World War II. The all-star cast includes Lee Marvin, Telly Savalas, Charles Bronson, Jim Brown, Donald Sutherland, Ernest Borgnine, and George Kennedy. After exceeding his orders on a prior mission, and several scrapes with authority, Major John Reisman (Lee Marvin) is forced to choose 12 soldiers from a military prison to invade a Nazi occupied ch''teau near Renne, in Brittany. The prisoners are a eclectic mix of men, with sentences that range from a few years of hard labor to death by hanging. They are also highly resistant to authority, which makes Reisman's job that much tougher. After a bout of vigorous training, the soldiers parachute in to France and launch an attack on the heavily fortified villa. Although the soldiers face slim odds of survival, they must accomplish their mission in order to disrupt the German chain of command.
