When a platoon of American troops lands on the beaches of Italy during World War II, they face uncertainty and danger with every step. Those who survive the initial landing, including Sgt. Tyne (Dana Andrews) and Sgt. Ward (Lloyd Bridges), are sent on a mission to take control of a farmhouse and blow up a nearby bridge. Marching through the Italian countryside, the soldiers, occasionally interrupted by engagements with the enemy, pass the time talking, but always keep their objectives in mind.
