Sgt. James Belushi takes command in American macho-fashion alongside an effeminate British captain (Jerome Ehlers). It's nice to have the roles down. The event is the Battle of El Alamein, Egypt during WWII. And the story is remade from the 1943 film with the same name, starring Humphrey Bogart. This 1995 TV version has fine production values and a good narrative drive. Director Brian Trenchard-Smith makes no fuss about the job; this is straight-forward storytelling with strong emphasis on characters, although not necessarily multifaceted ones.
