Product Details

Made the same year as Battle of Algiers, and dealing with the exact same subject matter, Lost Command is an oft-forgotten action story telling the story of the Algerian fight for independence from the French perspective. Following the end of the Indochina conflict with the disastrous defeat at Dien Bien Phu, French colonel Pierre Raspeguy are returned to France by their Vietminh captors, only Raspeguy discovers his regiment has been disbanded. It isn't long before Raspeguy is offered another regiment, a new group of paratroopers made up of some old comrades and a group of rejects from other units. Arriving in Algeria, Raspeguy's 10th Parachute Regiment must help to put down the Algerian fight for independence, only to discover the rebel leader is an old friend.
