Algeria war film, need title


Recommended Posts

30 some odd years ago, I watched a movie as a teenager that was an old black and white film about a small unit of soldiers, I guess they were French, or perhaps mercenaries, fighting the Arab tribes in either Algeria or maybe Morocco. I think they were paratroopers, and it was set in post World War 2 North Africa. It was NOT the Battle of Algiers, nor the Anthony Quinn film Lost Command this film was mostly set in the rural desert region. I specifically rember one scene where the soldiers have captured a terrorist/rebel and are forcing him to dig a grave for a dead civilian while the 10-year-old son of the dead civilian watches. The movie was black and white, and while the soldiers in the story may have been French, the actor I believe were American. I think it was an American production of the late 50's or early 60's. Anybody have a clue what the name of this film was?
