In this derivative Second World War adventure, a host of familiar faces that you can't quite put a name to keep their upper lips stiff as our boys try to destroy a French chateau containing a Nazi super-weapon, the V3. David McCallum makes light of his character's awful name (Quint Munroe), playing an RAF pilot who must comfort his missing friend's wife and lead the mission. Only some nice flying sequences and the mellifluous support of Charles Gray pass muster.

Plot Summary
