As French bomber crews prepare an air raid from a base in England, we learn the story of Matrac, a French journalist who opposed the Munich Pact. Framed for murder and sent to Devil's Island, he and four others escape. They are on a ship bound for Marseilles when France surrenders and fascist sympathizer Major Duval tries to seize the ship for Vichy. Written by

When Mattrac is pointing his fifty cal. machine gun out the waist gun window, we hear machine gun sounds, but the gun is not firing. The 50 cal. M2 machine gun produces a great deal of vibration when it is being fired. The gun did not vibrate one bit. See more
He still fights. The bombs they're dropping tonight are editorials the Germans will understand.
