Based on a real-life case, Lieutenant Theo Kojack (Telly Savalas) leads an investigation into the murders of two women who were found in their Manhattan apartment. A young black man is arrested and confesses to the crime, but Kojack feels something is off about the case. Using his connections on the streets, he gets a tip from a drug addict about the real killer. Soon Kojack realizes that his department contains crooked cops, and that the accused man was forced into the confession.
American Lt. Col. Dan Kiley (Henry Fonda), a military intelligence whiz, discovers that the Nazis are planning to attack Allied forces near Belgium. Certain that the exhausted enemy can't muster much force, Gen. Joe Grey (Robert Ryan) isn't convinced by Kiley's findings, and his men pay the price when the German tanks begin their offensive. In the heat of this key World War II battle, Kiley must come up with a plan when it becomes clear that the Nazis are trying to steal fuel from the Allies.
