Abstract:

Major John Ormsby, head of the Ormsby Road Building Company, accepts a contract to build a road connecting the United States to Alaska, a military necessity after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Compelled by patriotic duty, the men of the company join the U.S. Engineer Corps and begin their 1600 mile journey north, cutting and blasting eight miles a day through dense trees and rock, knowing that if the Japanese invaded, the road would have to be ready. Pushing themselves and their equipment to the limit in the rough Canadian wilderness, the men must pull together to survive the brutal cold and natural disasters they encounter. However, when Ormsby's sons begin to fight over a woman they both love, the bitter rivalry puts family, careers, lives and the whole operation at risk.
