It is considered to be one of the first movies to discuss the use of tunnels in war.

While the film was popular upon its release in 1965, its popularity would not peak until nearly a decade later, when it became of one of the 'Three Old Fights', a collection of three war films that were given wide circulation during the cultural revolution (1966-1976) — the other two films were 'Warfare of Landmine' (1962) and 'Fighting North and South' (1952).
