This war drama, set in Tunisia during WW II, chronicles the exploits of five American soldiers lost in the desert and unable to radio for help because all broadcasts are being monitored by the Nazis. As they attempt to travel through the dust and heat, the men engage in skirmishes with the enemy. Sometimes they must even ward off aerial attacks. Only one man survives the ordeal. Eventually he comes across an enemy mine field. Nearby he sees a thirst-crazed German lieutenant who has a map of the mine placements. In exchange for the map, the GI gives the German water. The ungracious Nazi tries to double-cross him.
