    Three years after he made `The Dirty Dozen`, Robert Aldrich returned to the theme of war and not only produced and directed, but wrote the story and screenplay for this action-packed adventure epic, featuring reluctant heros and a stunning climax!

    It is WWII, November 1942 and the U.S. launches a major naval offensive in the South Pacific. To ensure batttle plans remain secret, a Japanese radio installation must be destroyed and so American naval officer is ordered by his commander to join a squad of british misfits on a suicide mission to take out the facility.

    Michael Caine is one of the misfits - a cynical soldier who`d just as likely shoot his commanding officer as obey him. However, when the ragtag band learn of secret Japanese plans, what began as a simple suicide mission becomes a war.
