Sam Gifford remembers : In prewar years he was an arrogant southern cotton plantation owner, married to the daughter of a colonel. At the beginning of the war he was mobilized with his National Guard unit as a sergeant. Came the day when, revolted by the cowardice of his lieutenant, who had fired at his own men, he hit him. Downgraded, he was sent to a disciplinary battalion. Sam now discovers his new detachment, his new commanding officer, just another cowardly brute, Captain Waco Grimes. While in combat, Sam will gradually become closer to the privates, working-class people he used to despise. He will become another man, a better man.Written by
When Twentieth Century-Fox bought the rights to the Francis Gwaltney novel "The Day the Century Ended", it hired The Twilight Zone (1959) television-playwright and Philippines war veteran Rod Serling to write the script. During World War II, Serling was a paratrooper in the 511th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 11th Airborne Division. However, his draft script was deemed too long and rejected. Other writers were then assigned script duties. He does not receive a writer's credit, so it's not known how much of his work wound up in the final script. He once told of his involvement on this movie, "My first screen job was at Fox on a war flick called 'Between Heaven and Hell'. I turned in a script that would have run for nine hours on the screen. As I recall, it was over 500 pages. I didn't know what the hell I was doing. They just said ''Here's 1500 bucks a week--write!" So I wrote. They eventually took the thing away from me and handed it over to six other writers, but I lay claim to the fact that my version had some wonderful moments in it. In nine hours of script, by God, there HAVE to be a couple of wonderful moments!" See more »

See it – A vastly underrated and reflective war movie starring Robert Wagner and Buddy Ebsen. This movie has been nearly forgotten over the years, and it's a shame. Much of the story is told in flashbacks. There's very good character development. And best of all, there was much more action than I expected. A bit slow toward the beginning, but there is a really cool action sequence in one of the flashbacks where Wagner and some of his men assault a cliff-side machine gun nest. When the current story picks back up after the flashbacks, there is plenty more action, including an exciting and desperate ending. 3.5 out of 5 action rating
