Synopsis

Whilst America was massing its forces at the beginning of World War 2, Britain had to keep the Germans at bay by mounting commando raids. To do this, the Allies created special task forces, one of which - the 1st Special Service Force - is destined for a raid on Norway. This force consists of Canadian and American conscripts and is lead by Lt. Col. Robert T. Frederick (William Holden), who has the daunting task of moulding this renegade group into a crack team of commando warriors. But when the Norway raid is cancelled, Frederick manages to persuade his superiors to give the commandos another assignment and volunteers them for a perilous attack on a Nazi stronghold in the mountains.
