Synopsis

In Europe in 1944, a group of American recruits are delivered as replacements to war-weary Sergeant Cooley. As the young and inexperienced newcomers go into combat, a somewhat aloof private, Hacker, is stunned by his first exposure to death. But he quickly hardens himself to the business of war and is soon killing Germans with an almost fanatical pleasure, even gunning down a German soldier who is clearly trying to surrender. Sergeant Cooley rebukes him, and Hacker turns sullen and resentful. However, when Cooley is wounded during an attack on a German-held farmhouse, Hacker distinguishes himself by running through enemy fire and dragging Cooley to safety. At a field hospital, Cooley invites Hacker, who has never had a real home, to visit him in New Mexico. Then, after Cooley has been sent back to the United States, Hacker is promoted to sergeant and returned to the front lines to prepare other young men for battle.
