A Marine Story
Paul Howard, an idealistic, patriotic, and conscientious young man, volunteers for the U.S. Marine Corps. His keenly developed sense of right and wrong carries him from the arms of his childhood sweetheart to boot camp at Parris Island, and finally into the rugged hills and the heart of the conflict in Korea. He is asked to lead a reconnaissance patrol behind enemy lines, where he is captured. Interred and tortured in a brutal prisoner of war camp, he escapes to South Korea, only to find that he has been betrayed by his own men. Accused of raping a North Korean girl, he is court-martialed for rape and dereliction of duty. His dramatic trial attracts a worldwide audience.
