Alessandrini's 1942 military film about the British assault on the Italian held Libyan city.


 It is one of the most famous war films from Mussolini's Italy about a group of Italians who are under siege by the British in Libya. The situation is hopeless for the Italians and it is clear that they will lose. The propaganda was intended to give a patriotic message to the Italians -- the worst days of the war were approaching, and that the right thing to do is to remain calm and dignified. There is also a feeling of sacrifice for the motherland in the face of overwhelming odds.

The film was exported with German language dubbing as Die Letzten von Giarabub.

Here we show the page from the DIFU ("German–Italian Film Union") catalogue advertising the film to German cinema owners:
