Abstract

Story of the final days of the first Indochina War (1946-1954) based on the director's experience as a photojournalist covering the French Army in Vietnam. A 13-man commando unit parachutes into North Vietnam to rescue a Red Cross nurse being held by the Viet Minh. The commandos massacre a village and Viet Minh prisoners in the process. They then begin a fighting withdrawal to the coast where they are finally caught and wiped out by the Viet Minh.
