The Americans are pulling back as a result of a German breakout. As they withdraw, Saunders and his men are ordered to destroy heavy construction equipment in a French quarry to keep it from being used by the Germans. As they place thermite grenades in the equipment, they are fired upon by the Frenchman, Vertrain, who owns the quarry and the equipment. Saunders manages to get behind Vertrain and disarm him, but before they can finish destroying all the equipment, more than a dozen Germans arrive with a machine gun and trap them in the quarry. Saunders asks Vertrain to help them get the bulldozer running so they can use it to get out of the quarry. Vertrain refuses until he is wounded by the Germans and Saunders risks his own life to pull him to shelter. In spite of what the Americans did to his equipment, Vertrain finally agrees to help by driving the dozer. Kirby welds steel plate to the dozer and makes it into a do-it-yourself armored personnel carrier.- Written by David Wile
