A group of American soldiers volunteer for a dangerous mission to a Japanese-occupied island

One soldier develops a complex because he convinces himself that he has failed in his duty to a dying buddy. He imagines that being a Jew and the victim of prejudice in his own group is that fact responsible for his "cowardice"

Under pressure of a tense situation, he becomes partially paralyzed so that he cannot walk. He is put under medical care

And with the help of his doctor and fellow soldiers, he is brought to realize that he and his comrades are essentially "just guys," with no difference determined by blood or religion. He recovers and faces the world with confidence

A challenging drama. Though this might be termed a war play, so far as the situation is concerned, the author's business is with a psychological problem that has nothing to do with war
