Caan and six other young volunteers from west Texas set out to join the Confederate army during the middle of the Civil War, riding hundreds of miles to get to Tennessee in time for the battle of Shiloh. Calling themselves the Concho County Comanches, the naively eager volunteers encounter

class prejudice and miscellaneous perils along the way. Caan is wounded during the battle of Shiloh and wakes up to find his arm amputated. He hears that the only other survivor of his little group, Sarrazin, has deserted and is being hunted. He finds his friend in a barn, dying. Caan then tells

the story of the group to sympathetic Confederate General Bragg (Doucette), who advises him to go home to Texas. The dialogue flows a little too thickly in an awkward attempt to find a parallel with the then-raging Vietnam War; Hale, a TV veteran, directs loosely, but the few action scenes he does

permit are snappy and scary. Harrison Ford appears as one of the volunteers.
