Led by American soldier Strother and Rumanian Peters (the daughter of a man killed by the Allies), a group of eight soldiers go behind enemy lines in WW II. They are to infiltrate the famous Ploesti oil fields and set up bombing flares for an air raid. At first Peters is hostile toward her

comrades but gradually she softens up, falling in love with Borland. He is ultimately killed as are several other infiltrators when the Allies bomb the oil fields in one of the most devastating attacks the Nazis suffered during the war. There are some interesting moments, with good direction that

maintains the suspense level. Based on a true story of the raid in which American fliers died by the hundreds.
