To hell and back : Based on Audie Murphy's autobiography, Murphy plays himself, from his upbringing as the son of Texas sharecroppers to his Army career in World War II, where he was the most-decorated American soldier.

Battle hymn : Tormented for years by a sense of guilt after inadvertently bombing a German orphanage during World War Two, Parson Dean Hess (Rock Hudson) leaves his pulpit and wife to return to the Air Force as a training officer during the Korean War. Posted near the remote village of Yungsan in South Korea, Col. Hess is tasked with instructing the inexperienced Korean pilots but his mission takes a personal twist when he stumbles upon an opportunity to help local orphans. Between his battle against an evil foe and his determination to save the children, Hess may just find the redemption he so desperately seeks. Based on actual events from Hess's personal narrative.

Jet pilot : Sent by the Pentagon to obtain top secret information from a supposedly defecting Russian lady pilot, the Colonel courts her so successfully that they fall in love and wed. With their marriage as a perfect cover, he is ordered to flee Russia with his bride, this time with him posing as a defector. When the political charade is discovered, however, the courageous couple embark in a dangerous flight to freedom in a heart-pounding escape with enemy agents in hot pursuit.

In enemy country : Wartime secret agents are on a mission to destroy a deadly new type of torpedo, hidden in a Nazi stronghold in France.
