During the Second World War, Captain Lee Mitchell (Stuart Whitman) and a group of British commandos attempt to locate and kidnap the leading German rocket scientist Dr. Von Heinken (Pinkas Braun). Along the way they are chased by SS and Soviet forces who were also after him.[3]



A paperback novelization of the screenplay was written by the ubiquitous and popular pulpsmith, Michael Avallone, under the publisher's "house" (shared) pseudonym, "Max Walker." (Contrary to any other assertion, this is the only time Avallone's work was published under the Walker by-line.) The publisher was Popular Library and the cover price was 60¢.
