When Allied Forces were engaging Rommel in North Africa during WW2, as usual the frontline troops had the heaviest casualties. So when Act.Sgt.Michael Santini is successful in guiding his mis-matched and depleted international Special Forces squad through a rear-guard defense in the Kasserine Pass, he counts himself lucky when only wounded. But in a rear-echelon hospital the fight for his life intensifies. Falsely charged with rape, a wartime offense punishable by death, his existence suddenly depends upon the outcome of a wildly psychological Courts-Martial.Later thrown together in an espionage mission in Southern France with the conniving nurse that tried to eliminate him, New York taxi driver Santini finds that destiny has plans for him different than he had ever imagined.
