Weeks after Hitler’s suicide but before the German surrender, American Captain Jack Lee must find a way to free prisoners they learn have been sentenced to be killed by the Nazi soldiers to prevent them from providing damning war crimes testimony. About 200 hardened Waffen SS troops are right behind the Americans, with orders to murder the prisoners, and the badly outnumbered Americans must turn to the German castle guards who just surrendered to them, to help move the French POWs to safety.
