Korea 1950. A platoon of the toughest, most experienced soldiers is left behind to conduct a rearguard action for the retreating Americans -sacrifice of the few to save the many. Among the familiar American types is a corporal who shrinks from leadership because he panics in action and is afraid to kill a man, an inversion of the instinctive soldier, hunter and killer. The artificiality of the studio set adds an almost reflexive aspect to the 'staging' of combat designed to convince the enemy that the platoon is a much larger force. Combat is further abstracted by Fuller's alternation of objective and subjective perspectives
