A group of American soldiers endure a horrific battle against the Japanese in this stark look at the realities of war. The story follows Capt. MacDonald (Cornel Wilde) and his men through a single campaign to take control of a Japanese-held island. Each of the men -- including a sadistic sergeant (Rip Torn), an illiterate country boy (Burr DeBenning) and a minister's son (Patrick Wolfe) -- struggles to face the horrors of war on his own terms.
