At the end of World War II, a National Guard infantry company must set up artillery observation posts in a strategic area. Lt. Costa (Jack Palance) knows that Capt. Cooney (Eddie Albert) is in command only because of the “connections” he made stateside. Costa has serious doubts concerning Cooney’s ability to lead, and when Cooney sends Costa and his men out on a dangerous mission — and refuses to reenforce them — all hell breaks loose.
