In one of WWII’s most explosive battles, American forces dominate a squadron of German Panzer tanks on the battlefields of France. Assuming the area has been secured and all German forces have either surrendered or been killed, the Americans return to their base to celebrate the end of the war. Unbeknownst to them, one tank and 5 soldiers were salvaged. With a broken Panzer tank, depleted gas supply and little food, these 5 fatigued Germans attempt to make it back home rather than surrender to the Americans. Led by the shell shocked Sergeant Ernst (Stan Cooper) the German troop takes refuge in small French town that has been ravaged by military occupation from both sides of the battlefield. The local physician, mayor and his gorgeous wife (Erna Schurer) are taken hostage to protect the Germans from the local militia as show them the way back home. Struggling to lead his men to safety as well as keep his own sanity, Sergeant Ernst is plagued by battle flashback and a yearning desire for the mayor’s wife.
