This is the story of the pains of an old-established infantry regiment when it dies and is reborn in a totally different shape as an armoured regiment. It is the task of the new commanding officer, Lt. Col. Charles Lewis, gradually to transform a raw, disjointed, disgruntled collection of individualists into a first-class fighting machine. The regiment is blooded in the battle of Normandy, facing once more the prospect of being wiped out.
