Verbatim Box Synopsis
In just a matter of hours and -- at any cost -- American soldiers must destroy a secret Nazi radar station in France. The Allied Air Force strike taking place in 24 hours will be shot down if the radar isn't destroyed.
As the GI's ambush a German truck, the French prisoners escape and hide in a nearby hay wagon. The Frenchmen pose as peasants and drive the hay wagon past a Nazi patrol to get their attention.
Meanwhile, the American GI's infiltrate the German lines. Once the Frenchmen are discovered they are tortured and executed by the Nazis for helping the Americans. But it's too late! Despite bloody battles with the Nazis and many casualties, the GI's demolish the radar station in time for the full blown air strike!
