Plot summary[edit]

Geoffrey Carter (John Sutton) a young commando British intelligence officer, is sent into occupied France as a one-man raid to destroy a munitions plant that manufactures bombs in Nazi-occupied France with the help from a patriotic farmer, M. Bonnard (Lee J. Cobb). Sutton confronts a French maiden Odette Bonnard (Annabella) who hates the British and the Germans.
