The end of the film, with the destruction of a town is the reason to see this otherwise unremarkable film
Discharged soldiers, just back from Viet Nam, decide to drive across country and see the nation they protected. The country doesn't want to see them, and after being hustled by a hooker, their car breaks down in a small town that doesn't treat them well. Their revenge makes Rambo's look like gentile tea party.
One of the many angry vet goes nuts films that popped up through the 1970's. Despite the fact that 20th Century Fox released this this is pure drive-in fodder. The film isn't really that good, but is made watchable and memorable by the total destruction of the town. Personally everyone had it coming on all sides, except the audience who has to wait an hour through bad acting to get to the good stuff. Containing what is probably the single worst performance of Joe Don Baker (Mitchell) this is the sort of movie that makes you really wonder how he was ever considered a star and leads you to the inescapable conclusion that Baker is rightly the punchline of jokes. I say this as someone who likes him as an actor.
If you get to see this just watch the end, where the mismatched gun shots (how many different noises can a single machine gun make?) make this worth seeing.
