Bob and Teddy Younger are two brothers who join the glorious “command” of the British Royal Marines. In 1942 the older brother perishes in action in the cold fjords of Norway, and his commander, who feels responsible for his death, is overcome by remorse. This same commander will then make sure that a similar fate does not befall the younger brother Teddy on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day.
