Burt Lancaster, in one of the finest performances of his career, stars as Asa Barker, a savvy U.S. major who reluctantly obeys an order to send a detachment of South Vietnamese troops and American advisors to a former French outpost that has been peaceful for years. Barker fears this action will draw the Viet Cong into the area – and he's right. The ill-advised order and its effect on Barker and his men provide the battle-ravaged background in this gripping story that's both an intimate portrayal of a few men at war and a microcosm of the American experience in Vietnam. The problems of myopic judgement in the high command and plummeting morale in the field seen in 1964 would occur again in the disastrous years that followed. Compelling and grimly real, no film embodies the moral and military dilemma of the U.S. presence in Vietnam better than "Go Tell the Spartans." Craig Wasson, Jonathan Goldsmith, Joe Unger, Dennis Howard, David Clennon and Dolph Sweet also star.

Thanks for the link, but, what does your review mean?

IIRC, you get to see Burt Lancaster's naked butt at the end after the gooks killed and stripped him.

Maybe I was just hoping.

“The most terrifying force of death comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left Alone.
TRUE TERROR will arrive at these people’s door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy…
but it will fall upon the deaf ears of the Men who just wanted to be left alone.”
