A group of men parachute into Japanese-occupied Burma with a dangerous and important mission: to locate and blow up a radar station. They accomplish this well enough, but when they try to rendezvous at an old air-strip to be taken back to their base, they find Japanese waiting for them, and they must make a long, difficult walk back through enemy-occupied jungle.

After the other platoon leader dies in the Burmese village, and Nelson(Flynn) takes his dog tags, there is a shot of the dog tag listing the address of the dead soldier. It gives the address as 781 Crane St, Schenectady, NY. This address appears to be the First World War memorial in Schenectady for those that died that were from there. See more
When the company gets to the top of the hill, Nelson is carrying the machine gun, which alternates between top-up and bottom-up. See more
