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.

One of the minor roles is a character named Negulesco, an in-joke. Director Jean Negulesco
was a contract director at Warners who was scheduled to direct Errol Flynn
's next picture, Adventures of Don Juan
(1948). Unforeseen delays caused it to be postponed and Negulesco was ultimately replaced. See more

Closing credits: This story has a conclusion but not an end- It will end only when the evil forces of Japan are totally destroyed. This film is gratefully dedicated to the men of the American, British, Chinese and Indian Armies, without whose heroic efforts Burma would still be in the hands of the Japanese. See more
