From what I gathered online, the 1970 film is about an American commander stuck behind German lines, after being the sole survivor of an ambush. Captain Turner, has no choice but to rely on a group of village orphans for survival. Together, they plot to complete the unit’s original mission to destroy a critical dam. Meanwhile, the Germans begin suspecting that there may be an American in the forest who survived the attack. Yet, they ignore the orphans whom they created.
