Plot Summary
During World War I, commanding officer General Broulard (Adolphe Menjou) orders his subordinate, General Mireau (George Macready), to attack a German trench position, offering a promotion as an incentive.

When it ends in disaster, General Mireau demands the court-martial of three random soldiers in order to save face.
