- Synopsis / Plot
- Colonel Dax (Kirk Douglas) is the commander of the battle-decimated 701st Infantry Regiment of the French Army, dug in along the Western Front in a stalemated WWI. It is 1916 and the Allies have been struggling to overcome an equally determined German war machine for two years. Dax, who was a criminal lawyer during peacetime, hopes that his regiment will be relieved from front-line duty. The high command has other plans. The generals General Broulard (Adolphe Menjou), corps commander and suave representative of the high command arrive at the placid, beautiful chateau that serves as headquarters for General Mireau (George Macready), the divisional general in charge. Broulard tells Mireau that his division has been dormant and must now make an all-out attack against an impregnable German position nicknamed the Ant Hill and that this position must be captured within 48 hours.
