Sergeant "Hap" Doan, heartbroken that the Nineteenth Cavalry, in which he has served for so many years, is to be mechanized and replenished with twenty recent draftees, goes on a drinking spree. He rails about leaving the Army, but is there when the draftees arrive, ready to make good soldiers out of them. When his horse, Cantigny, is killed by the explosion of a tank that had been sabotaged by Nazi-agents, he goes AWOL, and is court-martialed upon his return and given a dishonorable discharge.

A highly predictable, but pleasant enough trick story line. The idea was done to death in films both before and after, but can be forgiven because this was a patriotic push prior to our entering WWII. Not really a must for Wallace Berry fans, it's still nice to see a good character acter carry a movie.
