The Enemy Below (1957): Robert Mitchum, Curt Jurgens, Theodore Bikel, Dick Powell

German Captain: "It is part of our job to die."

Frankly, I prefer Gen. Patton:

"No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country."

Gen. Patton was a smart guy.

“It is absurd to believe that soldiers who cannot be made to wear the proper uniform can be induced to move forward in battle. Officers who fail to perform their duty by correcting small violations and in enforcing proper conduct are incapable of leading.”

He would have made a good National Review Board member.
