A renegade U.S. Army major is pressured to once again lead a motley gang of GIs on a secret wartime mission -- a suicide assignment behind German lines to thwart an assassination plot against Hitler -- in this TV-movie sequel to the hit 1967 theatrical adventure film, with Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine and Richard Jaeckel repeating their original roles. This filmed-in-Great Britain movie technically marked Lee Marvin's first TV movie -- technically, since the first one he did, "The Killers" (with Ronald Reagan) in 1964, was at the time deemed too violent for TV and was released theatrically instead. It also marked his sixth time teaming on film with Ernest Borgnine.
