    John Wayne grabs centre stage as the ruthless Colonel Marlowe in this powerful western, set in the US Civil War. This exciting film is based on the compelling story of the Grierson Raid, when Union troops cut a swathe deep into the heart of the Confederacy, to choke off vital supply lines. Director John Ford captures in superb photography, the epic scale of a classic western battle, especially in the tragic scene, where the Southern Military Cadets March gloriously to their death.

    Two great stars strike sparks from each other as Wayne`s character is strikingly contrasted with Doc, William Holden`s pacifistic company surgeon. With its rousing musical score, The Horse Soldiers is a moving tribute to those who fought in the brutal cavalry exploits of the US Civil War.
