Winter, 1943. The German army has halted the American advance in the mountains of Italy; back-and-forth combat decimates Joe Peterson's platoon. On leave in Naples, Joe meets WAC lieutenant Eleanor MacKay; initially cool, she begins to melt during a bombing raid. Their romance develops despite Joe's periodic returns to the front. But whether he'll come back in the end becomes more than doubtful...

The number on the side of the jeep that Blackford picks Pete up in camp with is different from the number on the side of the jeep Pete says is Blackford's when he picks up Eleanor outside the cafe. Later, after their drink as the jeep drives in the rain, the number switches back to the first number. In an amazing coincidence, the jeep Eleanor later requisitions for her 3-day leave with Pete appears to be the jeep Blackford had earlier in the film (same number on hood). See more
