Six cannons are stolen by renegade General Cordoba and American General Pershing (Russell) thinks it’s high time for some radical measures ‘to prevent that any of these cannons will ever be used against the American people’. Since the American Army is not allowed to cross the border into Mexico, an elite group, led by the tough, iconoclastic Captain Douglas (Peppard) is sent into the heart of Cordoba’s territory.
