Army captain Stanley Baker and his men occupy a Japanese town with deadly force; when Japanese reinforcements arrive, the pendulum swings back hard. Peter Newman’s adaptation of his autobiographical teleplay was helmed by resourceful Hammer semi-regular Guest into an acclaimed and unflinching look at WWII in shades of grey.
