A semi-propaganda film made by the Americans to show how the Second World War was affecting the various European nations. Sergeant Joe Gunn (Humphrey Bogart) leads an American unit who escape from the fiasco of the Battle of Tobruk and then pick up stranded European soldiers as they cross the Sahara Desert. The motley band of survivors finally have to outwit a huge group of German soldiers in a battle for supremacy over that most precious of desert commodities, a well. The film was later re-made as a Western, 'The Last of the Comanches'.
