Richard Widmark leads an all-star cast of leathernecks (Jack Palance, Robert Wagner, Karl Malden, Richard Boone, and Jack Webb) into battle on a heavily-fortified enemy island. Their objective is a Japanese rocket sit in the island's interior, and the combat-packed story follows the squad from beachhead to battle, as they pick their way trough enemy-infested jungles. Along the way, Widmark is transformed from a former school teacher into a combat-wizened leader, and his disparate squad of men is forged into a cohesive fighting unit. Directed by two-time Academy Award winner Lewis Milestone (All Quiet on the Western Front, Two Arabian Nights).
A Marine platoon leader is determined to keep alive the seven men who have survived under his command, even though they have only twenty-four hours to take out a Japanese rocket command that threatens to devastate the Allied Forces.
