Plot Summary
This World War II men-on-a-mission film follows a British commando unit, led by Lt. Graham (Dirk Bogarde), ordered to sneak onto a Greek island and take out two German airbases. Once they're on the island, though, the plan doesn't go well. The place is crawling with Nazis, and Graham tries desperately to keep his men from losing hope. But after the commandos split into two groups, the mission turns suicidal when many of the men are captured by Germans. Still, Graham must see it through.
