  • New York intellectual Eugene Morris Jerome starts military service thoughtfully, yet patriotically prepared to part-take in World War II. In boot-camp at Biloxi, Mississippi, he faces the brutally opposed views of other recruits, especially the less-educated. Still they must bind, if not bond, facing the sadistic instructor during their physically ruthless and mentally abusive training, which is heading for tragedy. Meanwhile, their boyish minds wander often to sexual frustrations, from obsession with potency (and 'escaping' virginity) to prejudice against gays.
