Synopsis

Days of Glory tells of a forgotten army: the North African soldiers
from former French colonies who took up arms to defend a country
that most had never seen. Their motives for doing so are varied but
all are unified by a sense of duty and a pride in their part in freeing
France from the Nazis. However what really unites the men – and
also begins to tear them apart – is the fact that despite the risk to
each being equal on the battlefield, in the mess hall they are
treated as second-class citizens.
