In the autumn of 1944, a few months after the D-Day in northern France, there was an exchange of fire between the Germans and the Americans. Private James Lewis saw his friend killed in the battle next to him. He froze and did not fire at the German soldiers. As a result, Captain Beckett was injured and he marked Lewis as a cof. Nurse 1st Lieutenant Vera Cornwall ordered Nurse 2nd Lieutenant Nancy Bell from the transport truck to assist in the operation of Captain Beckett.

The German soldiers returned and killed the doctor, and captured the wounded Beckett, Lewis, Lieutenant Maxwell and two nurses. With the transfer of American prisoners of war, the paratroopers Griggs and Fisher rescued them. In the fight, Maxwell cut a German defender. While planning the next move, an SS officer shot and killed Fisher. The angry Griggs physically attacked and killed the Germans, and SS-Obersturmfuhrer Dittrich surrendered to the United States.

The organization needs to find its own troops with the surrounding Germans. A German soldier stopped for lunch, the prisoner Dietrich yelled to shoot them, and Lewis yelled to put down your rifle. In the confrontation, Beckett shot and killed the German, and Lewis once again did not use a gun. They came to a French farmhouse, and the owner Bruno Travert reluctantly allowed them to stay in the barn. Lewis thought the captain must hate him, and Maxwell assured him that he was just trying to save his life. Lewis establishes a relationship with Nancy, and Maxwell establishes a relationship with Vera.

The next day, when Bruno and Vera were ready to supply supplies, two SS officials came to check. Coward Lewis hides behind the door. The Germans are looking for strangers and think that Bruno lives alone. When the two soldiers saw Nancy, Lewis shot, and now they have a second German prisoner.

The captain decided that they must die. Maxwell and Lewis led the prisoners into the forest. Graf begs for a lifetime, but Dietrich remains silent. Lewis cannot shoot his man, but you will hear two shots in the woods. Nancy had a conversation with the captain about the killing. He said it was simple. If he does not kill the enemy, they will kill him. The opposite of the same.

When the four left the farmhouse, a truckload of Germans returned looking for the Americans. They executed Bruno, but did not see Vera. The four found an American tank and Maxwell contacted the radio, but the four were captured again. The SS officer Hesse decided that Lewis had to fight men to strengthen his muscular men. He was beaten. They plan to escape. While dragging the water, they surpassed the cordon.

Lewis shot him with a German guard gun, and Maxwell blew up a muscular man with a German grenade. Lewis then killed the ammunition guard and controlled the supply. He planted bombs around the camp. The SS officer Hesse issued a decree, marking the prisoners of war as traitors and sentenced them to death. Vera was also taken away and killed. Lewis set off a camp bomb and rescued his Americans. When they left in a jeep, Vera shot Hessen.

They were free, but when they approached the waiting Americans, the Nazi flag was flying on their jeep. Lewis gave up the lucky American flag his sister gave him, and they were welcomed and safe.
