Following the Normandy Landings, a group of U.S. soldiers go behind enemy lines to retrieve a paratrooper whose brothers have been killed in action.
In the German-dubbed version of the movie, one of the actors, who was a German veteran of the Normandy invasion, dropped out and had to be replaced due to the emotional realism of the film.
LCVP pilot: CLEAR THE RAMP! THIRTY SECONDS! GOD BE WITH YA!
When Upham is recruited by Captain Miller, Upham grabs his typewriter case and drops the case and the type writer. When he then goes to return the German helmet to the shelf he suddenly has the empty case back in his hands.
There are no opening credits after the title is shown.
German television-version is heavily cut, missing most of the violence particularly during the landing-scene at the beginning of the film.
