In the closing days of World War II, German prisoners riot in a POW Camp in Scotland. Fearful of a mass escape attempt, the British Army sends in an unorthodox Irish Captain in hopes of discovering exactly what is going on. The Irishman at once comes into conflict with the senior prisoner, a U-Boat commander, and the two must match wits, knowing that only one will emerge victorious. Written by

The movie details a rivalry between a grizzled bastard of a gun-for-hired POW Camp Commandant, Captain Jack Connor played by Brian Keith
and a leader of a camp of Nazi German prisoners-of-war, Kapitänleutnant Willi Schlueter played by Helmut Griem
. In gigantic letters, one of the movie's posters played a play on words with the P.O.W acronym. Schlueter was emphasized as being a P - O - W, whilst Keith was emphasized as being a S - O - B. See more
