Plot Summary
In the early days of America's involvement in World War II, a Marine battalion readies to challenge the Japanese. The men will see limited action at Guadalcanal, but their leader, Major Sam Huxley (Van Heflin), won't rest until his forces get closer to the action. Meanwhile, Andy (Aldo Ray), a key member of "Huxley's Harlots," sets aside his fear of leaving his new wife (Nancy Olson) a war widow for the second time, and joins his buddies in the crucial Battle of Saipan.
