Synopsis

Three secret service agents carry out their mission in Occupied France having used a Nazi agent to supply false information to the Gestapo.

The following statement regarding the story appears after the opening credits: 'No single story could ever pay full tribute to the accomplishments of the U.S. Army Intelligence in World War II. Working secretly behind enemy lines, in close cooperation with our Allies, its brilliant work was an acknowledged factor in the final victory. In order to obtain the maximum of realism and authenticity, all the exterior and interior settings in this Motion Picture were photographed in the field -- and, wherever possible, at the actual locations.'
