Across the burning sands, a figure in a tattered uniform emerges. A British officer demands to be put in contact with his superiors, and report the German tanks are on the run. The immediate danger is in hiding from Germans who are outside the door. Posing as a waiter who was recently killed, the officer, actually an American Corporal, assumes the identity to hide out. Complaints from the Italian general about Field Marshal Rommel is heard, but will it be something that can be used to benefit our man when the time is right? Concern is shown that coded messages could be getting sent through laundry hanging on the lines.
Undercover plans are at odds when the officer, and a French woman have their own agendas with the army officials housed in the hotel. When 5 British officers have been captured, and brought in, it stands to change the mix for our little group. The chance to capture top level, enemy officers rather than kill them becomes the prize. Fishing for military secrets is begun. Supply caches, troop movement, and as much strategy and logistic information as can be gleaned is learned. Secret codes and maps contain valuable information.
Being trusted by the enemy, not knowing his real identity, the officer is sent on a mission to deliver the secret documents. In his 6 hour trip there is a lot that could go right, and a lot to go wrong. The ball has been set into motion, and allied forces have the upper hand.
