Nothing special about it.

It's just a rare war movie I am going to talk about. A Columbia Pictures product, with Sam Katzman as producer and Lew Landers as director. The "Dream Team" for this kind of film. An ordinary war movie about war in Korea, of course. The ordinary story of the ordinary American boy who wants to enlist in the Army to fight the Commies. He has a fiancée at home and goes to fight the enemy. He later meets another trooper whom he gets friend with....

The following is predictable, as you can guess. Sometimes boring, the battle sequences are just here to keep you awake, and mostly with stock shots. The last two minutes are perhaps a little poignant, and that's here you understand that this feature was no more no less than an ordinary propaganda film, to convince the American people that it was necessary to send troops in Korea. To preserve freedom.

The ordinary message we may expect in an ordinary war movie.
