In 1943 a group of mismatched Allied soldiers are sent to sabotage two powerful Nazi guns situated on a Greek island. If their mission fails, the guns will wipe out the 2,000 British soldiers who are attempting to evacuate civilians further down the coast. The mission is led by the dispassionate Captain Mallory (Gregory Peck), whose clinical approach does not find favour with explosives expert Corporal Miller (David Niven). Meanwhile, the group's Greek patriot guide Andrea Stavros (Anthony Quinn) is nursing a grudge against Mallory for an old injustice. A belated sequel, 'Force 10 from Navarone', followed in 1978.

If you are interested in how this classic anti-war film was restored, then by all means, buy this double-disc DVD. If however you want to see a correctly restored film, buy the single disc DVD instead as the quality of the double disc's feature presentation is dark and muddy: a real disappointment. This darkness is very apparent in the interior scenes.

Out of the older movies, this would be one that is up there for me, Gregory Peck and Anthony Quinn are good in this movie, good storyline to this movie. Good addition to the collection for War movie lovers.
