I was very surprised that the film took such a dim view of the Korean war and it was made right after that war.
Tonally the film is a little mixed with Mickey Rooney's character (perhaps unsurprisingly) bringing a little offbeat light-heartedness to proceedings, but for the most part it works ok (though for me the closing tribute speech is a little overly cloying - that the film precedes it with a more realistic climax than is often the case in such affairs is however very much to its credit).
