John Wayne went against the tide of public opinion to both direct and star in this epic flag-waver that sought to justify America's involvement in Vietnam. He plays a commander who is sent onto the battlefield to lead a regiment on a mission to kidnap a Vietcong general. As events unfold, a pacifist journalist (David Janssen) covering the sorti is gradually persuaded to accept the justness of the war.
