Brotherhood of Death (1976)

The tale of three African American men who return from Vietnam in the 1960’s to their small southern hometown. Hell bent on upholding racial justice, the boys soon find themselves employing their newfound army tactics to conduct an all-out war with members of the local Ku Klux Klan. With a cast comprised largely of Washington Redskins players, this low-budget film was a huge commercial success in its day, and is lauded (and often imitated) by many film insiders and directors, including Quentin Tarantino.
