Synopsis:
1940. A vital British convoy is crossing the Pacific, escorted by a cruiser squadron under the command of Captain Richard Saville (Michael Rennie). When a powerful German raider, the Essen, is sighted in the area, Seville despatches his cruisers to attack and destroy the Nazi warship before it can decimate the convoy. The resulting sea battle is brutal and devastating for both sides... When the badly damaged German raider slips into a tropical lagoon for repairs, an escaped Canadian POW (Jeffrey Hunter) makes a desperate bid for freedom. Armed only with raw courage and a sniper rifle he must pin down the entire warship and its crew in the lagoon until the British fleet arrives...
As Saville leads his squadron in a desperate race against time to find and destroy the Essen, neither man has any idea of the strange of twist of fate that connects them both...
