Eighteen-year-old Andy Pope is a Second Lieutenant in a British infantry battalion. He's younger than most of the men in his platoon — which makes it hard to be their officer. But he earns their respect by being fair and leading them into battle when the chips are down. Then Andy is put to the test when he finds himself in charge of a unit that has to keep the Germans from occupying a strategic French town.
