Steve McQueen fights his own private battle as a volatile "war lover" in this gripping story based on a novel by John Hersey. Stationed in England during World War II, Buzz Rickson (McQueen) is the bravest Air Force pilot in his squadron - and the most reckless. His maniacal quest for thrills takes him to the brink of destruction during the B-17 bombing raids on Germany. But while Buzz's daredevil heroics win the grudging respect of his crew, his rebellious attitude alienates everyone, except his co-pilot, Ed Bolland (Robert Wagner). Ultimately, Buzz destroys even this relartionship by pursuing Ed's girlfriend, Daphne (Shirley Anne Field)...
