During the Korean War, an entire division of soldiers is forced to withdraw down a mountain, with a few dozen troops left behind to fend off enemy forces. One of the platoon members, Corp. Denno (Richard Basehart), is reluctant to end the life of another person, but, as soldier after soldier falls, he must learn both how to kill and how to act as a commanding officer. In addition to facing enemy troops, Denno and his remaining men have to contend with an icy descent down treacherous terrain.

    yup sam fuller's war movies from the 50s are better than anyone else's war movies from the 50s

    Samuel Fuller once again takes on the Korean War (see also <i>The Steel Helmet</i>) in this hard hitting 1951 film. This is the story of an American army platoon left behind to protect a narrow mountain pass, buying time for their comrades to safely withdrawal. Fuller's style focuses on the inner turmoil of individual soldiers, emphasizing the toll that combat takes on reluctant heroes.
