A British ship is sunk after an engagement with a German vessel, and the survivors are picked up by the German ship, which has been damaged. When it pulls into the bay of a deserted island to make repairs, one of the British survivors, Seaman Brown, steals a rifle and escapes from the ship, his plan being to try picking off the crew from various spots on the island and delay the ship's repairs long enough for a British vessel to arrive and give battle.

This is a great film version of CS Forrestor's book of the same title.
I love the book and I love the movie.
Great story of determination in the face of long odds.
Brown one of two able seaman to survive a cruiser sinking after an engagement with a German cruiser is picked up by the damaged German cruiser.
The German cruiser needs repairs and chooses a bay on a rocky inhospitable island.
While the ship is immobile Borown steals a rifle and escapes ashore - he manages to snipe at the Germans repairing the ship for long enough for the rest of the British squadron to find and engage the German cruiser.
