Cast & Crew
During World War II, three survivors of the sunken German ship Pommern are rescued, returned to Germany, and hailed as heroes. An investigation follows, however, and the three men are arrested and charged with desertion. Court martial evidence proves that the sea battle lasted 3 hours after the men had abandoned the ship in a raft. The court finds them guilty and orders the death penalty for all three.
