Operation Cross Eagles

The action takes place around the Yugoslav-Italian border.

A commando operation wipes out the German fuel supply at Capodistria, another group landing at Pisano is surprised. The survivors join forces with the underground to liberate a British courier at Socerb.

A double agent is coveted by a dyke in the Kriegsmarine, the Admiral extends professional courtesy.

Plans for “the Allied invasion of the Balkans” are at stake.

Beautifully filmed on location, especially among the salt fields fed by the sea that figure prominently.

The Tartini monument and a Tintoretto appropriated by the Admiral are notable.

A very little-known film.
