An RAF squadron is assigned to knock out a German rocket fuel factory in Norway that supplies fuel for the Nazi effort to launch rockets on England during D-Day. Their nearly impossible mission is further complicated by a German air raid, the difficult approach to the target and the capture and torture of the underground leader who is assisting the squadron.
