Description by

Surly Captain McGregor (Gary Cooper) and wry, blue-blooded Lieutenant Forsythe (Franchot Tone) are officers in charge of newcomer Stone (Richard Cromwell), the commanding officers inexperienced son. Motivated by a grudge toward his father (Guy Standing), Lt. Stone allows himself to be captured by the enemy. Foiled in a daring rescue attempt, Captain McGregor and Lt. Forsythe face ruthless torture for military secrets until they escape into the films most splendid battle, where Stone becomes an unlikely hero.
