A sensitive, educated black man's World War II-time problems. This is essentially the duplicate of his peace-time problems which are pointed up in a flashback of his life, and primarily of his war-time adventures with four white soldiers on a dangerous reconnaissance mission on a Japanese-held island.

Emotionally powerful character study with WWII backdrop
James Edwards, LLoyd Bridges, Frank Lovejoy, Steve Brodie, and Jeff Corey all give outstanding performances in this powerful and moving story of handling life and death situations. With no false notes, this film probes all the characters' psychological profiles in order to tell its story. Perhaps one of the best war films ever made.
