Plot Summary
Army Capt. Webb Sloane (Ronald Reagan) accepts an undercover mission to report on the suspected brutalities of North Korean POW camps during the Korean War. After parachuting down among prisoners marching toward the camps, Sloane discovers the truth behind the reported conditions -- communist brainwashing, fake executions and violent methods of behavior control cause the prisoners to live in terror of their captors. But despite the daily atrocities, the men prove their spirits cannot be broken.
