Heroes in Hell (Italian: Eroi all'inferno) is a 1973 Italian Macaroni War film that was written and directed by Joe D'Amato, produced by Walter Brandi and starring Klaus Kinski, Luciano Rossi and Franco Garofalo.[1]


A group of American POW's escape from a vile Nazi prison camp in Germany during World War II. They escape into the countryside, pursued by a squadron of Nazi soldiers assigned to recapture them. The Americans join forces with a group of French freedom fighters, and agree to help them kidnap a high-level German general (Klaus Kinski) from his chateau. Using German uniforms captured in combat, the men succeed in capturing the general, but when he puts up a fight, they are forced to tranquilize him and physically carry him out of the building. The Nazi platoon catches up with them and a firefight ensues, killing almost everyone on both sides. The last surviving Americans succeed in escaping with their unconscious prisoner.
