Previous, i watched this movie. The title is Days of Glory. The story is about how the indigènes (Algerians, Tunisians and Moroccan Goumiers) were fighting the nazi troops at their land which is Africa on behalf of French Army.
They are the front line to exempt the territory from nazis. They sing the French national anthem.
For me they were like balaci to French.The film also portrays about Malaysian people last time. Working together with British army fighting to Japanese.
Back to the film, at the end 4th of them went to somewhere in russia/german/italy far from their homeland. Lastly, 2 of them are alive. I think so.. And their sacrifice were not appreciated by French people.
