After the fall of Tobruk in June 1942, U.S. Army sergeant Joe Gunn leads his tank into the Sahara desert, in order to evade advancing Rommel's forces and reach Allied lines. Along the way he picks up few Allied soldiers, but soon they are running out of water. They find water at the ancient well, but the well is a goal of an entire German battalion. Despite the impossible odds, Sergeant Gunn decides to defend the well. Written by

The tank used in the film is an M3 Lee, but has features of the variety used by the Australian Army during WW2. The standard US commander's cupola was deleted from the 37mm turret and a pintle mounted .30 caliber Browning machine gun was used in its place. Additionally the type of track used on the tank is track used by Commonwealth forces and not US forces. See more
