Judy Benjamin (Goldie Hawn) is an American woman who joins the U.S. Army after her new husband dies on their wedding night during sex. Duped by a sneaky recruiting sergeant, Jim Ballard (Harry Dean Stanton), who lets her believe military life to be more glamorous than it is, she has a rude awakening in boot camp. After getting in trouble constantly, Judy wants to quit but chooses to stick it out, and has a series of adventures which eventually lead to promotion.
During her service, Judy meets Henri Tremont (Armand Assante), a dashing French doctor. However, their romance is short-lived when he returns to Paris and she to her army career. Later Judy manages to be assigned to SHAPE in Belgium, and she meets up with Henri again. He proposes marriage; she accepts, but when Captain Lewis (Eileen Brennan), her boot camp officer, discovers that Tremont is a communist, Judy is forced to choose between giving up her army career or leaving him to continue her service.
After she chooses Henri over the Army, Judy discovers Henri's controlling side, when he tries to 'remake' her, and when forced to sign a prenuptial agreement in his favor. Then, when she finds out Henri is still madly in love with an old flame (his ex, Clare) and has cheated on her with their maid, she realizes that she is capable of doing whatever she wants, and that she doesn't need Henri for that. She walks out on him at the altar to go and live her own life.

During the early days of World War II, England hastily plans commando raids against the German forces to keep them at bay until the United States finishes massing its forces and starts sending America's troops into battle. In order to tie up the German forces and as a part of England's plan, the Allies create the 1st Special Service Force to prepare and carry out an attack on Norway. Antagonism immediately erupts between Canadian Maj. Alan Crown (Cliff Robertson) and American Maj Cliff Bricker (Vince Edwards) when this commando force, composed of Canadian soldiers and American GIs, is headed by Lt. Col. Robert T. Frederick (William Holden), a paper-pusher given his first field command. Frederick utilizes their mutual dislike as a basis for a rivalry that turns this rag-tag group of misfits into a disciplined fighting force. Frederick receives word that the Norway mission has been canceled after his men finally seem ready to fight. After appealing to Washington for another assignment for the commandos, the brigade is sent on a patrol near the German lines in southern Italy. The brigade captures an enemy-held village and is then given the seemingly impossible task of taking Mt. La Difensa.
