Synopsis

At the height of the Korean war, Lieutenant Joe Clemons (Gregory Peck) receives orders to take Pork Chop Hill before the Chinese forces have a chance to claim it. The reasoning behind this new objective is that US negotiators at the Panmunjom peace conference do not wish to lose face with their Chinese adversaries. Clemons thus leads his squad into combat, fully aware that his target has no military strategic importance, but could become a vital propaganda victory.
