Summary
A team of Allied military specialists are recruited for a dangerous but imperative mission: to infiltrate a Nazi-occupied fortress in Greece and disable two long-range field guns so that 2,000 trapped British soldiers may be rescued. Faced with an unforgiving sea voyage, hazardous terrain, and the possibility of a traitor among them, the team must overcome the impossible without losing their own lives
