Summary: Gritty American soldiers against Red Chinese offensive

An army platoon is charged with covering a withdrawal of the main body of American soldiers to elude the advance of Red troops during the Korean Conflict. The picture is a grim affair that emphasizes character and the emotional make-up of a soldier under stress during combat. Cpl. Denno [Richard Basehart] manages to rescue a wounded soldier from an area laden with hidden land mines and demonstrates his leadership qualities and mettle to his men...and to himself. Most of the movie concentrates on the platoon as represented by its cross-section of different American backgrounds as it hunkers down in a cave waiting out the enemy to see if they'll attack on foot or by tanks. There is very little sustained action until the last few moments in a picture that is very heroic but not entertaining.
