A simple wartime drama with nothing special in its story or characters, Tank Commandos stars Robert Barron as Lieutenant Blaine, an American officer fighting in Italy. He has been charged with heading up a unit of men to destroy an underwater bridge used by German tanks. One of the men in Blaine's squad is Diano (Donato Ferretta), an Italian-American whose language skills get him the job of interpreter with the local population. He is needed because there is only one Italian who knows where this underwater bridge is located -- and he is just a little kid. In this era of double-billed features, Tank Commandos was paired with Operation Dames at the cinemas and drive-ins.
