His name I believe was Franklyn, and he fought with the Villistas and Madero against Orozco it was during the battle for Parral. Orozco's artillery train pulled by mules couldn't get to the top of a hill that would have commaded the town. Villa ran out of ammo or something and had to evacuate, and this Franklyn from El Paso didn't get the word and was captured in a phamacy in town and was executed the next day.

  Sounds a little like Rico Fardan and Bill Dollworth.....well, at least without the execution part.   ::)   The Professionals 2: The Return maybe?

Such numerous soldiers, if they were only a bit trained, could IMO react like professional and not like amators (what they did in the movie). Of course, I'm talking about things that I don't know better than you, firercracker:)

why would I know better than anybody else? ;D

well Peacemaker got here before me but...it was a surprise attack. and they didnt know how many men there were up in the hills firing at them. So their first move was to get under the bridge for cover. sounds pretty tactical and logical.
Of course they didnt know the bridge was rigged so...BOOM!

There was an American mercenary in the MexRev, that was an expert machine gunner and he was able to stop an artillerary battalion from getting to occupy a hill.
all alone?

I say the only thing that Juan and John had to worry about during that battle was that tank Ruiz had.

Right. But i think this scene is possible under the only condition that these soldiers are beginers. i think once you have seen a few battles, you become more professional. But if it is there first or second one, their training may become completly useless since they are not used to be as endangered.

The soldiers in question were probably conscripts.
