A group of men parachute into Japanese-occupied Burma with a dangerous and important mission: to locate and blow up a radar station. They accomplish this well enough, but when they try to rendezvous at an old air-strip to be taken back to their base, they find Japanese waiting for them, and they must make a long, difficult walk back through enemy-occupied jungle.

Doorway to Japan !
Did You Know?
After the other platoon leader dies in the Burmese village, and Nelson(Flynn) takes his dog tags, there is a shot of the dog tag listing the address of the dead soldier. It gives the address as 781 Crane St, Schenectady, NY. This address appears to be the First World War memorial in Schenectady for those that died that were from there. See more
It's a mistake to think that the design of the radar unit with men sitting on seats on the unit would harm them, as has been said earlier in this section. The American radar units that surrounded Pearl Harbor (SCR-270 model) were operated with four men sitting on the main unit on the same level with the antenna. And the whole unit turned. In the American Military during World War II the radar units did not use microwave radiation like this they do since the Vietnam Era. These units were not powerful enough to be dangerous to humans. Many pictures of this kind of unit and other types can be found on the internet. See more
What if my parachute doesn't open?
Then you'll be the first one on the ground.
Closing credits: This story has a conclusion but not an end- It will end only when the evil forces of Japan are totally destroyed. This film is gratefully dedicated to the men of the American, British, Chinese and Indian Armies, without whose heroic efforts Burma would still be in the hands of the Japanese. See more
