Taken from the best selling novel by Anton Myrer, it depicts the careers of two Army Officers from World War I and through World War II. Sam Elliot is Sam Damon an officer who embodies the motto "Duty, Honor, Country. Courtney Massingale, played by Clff Potts, is the devious and shameful fellow officer who rises to the top by letting nothing stand in his way. The conflict between the two men is joined against the carnage, the mud, and the misery of the Argonne. It intensifies in the isolated garrison life between the wars and in the Pacific jungles of World War I, and ominously climaxes in the last major battle of the Khotiane War. A strong supporting cast, including Glenn Ford, makes this one of the best dramas ever produced for the small screen. A must see for anyone who holds the military in high regard. No story has explored with such fidelity, scope, and depth the Americans who make war and peace. No narrative has presented with such authenticity the power, compassion, raging fear, pain and the terrible price of combat. This classic story canvasses in depth those unique characteristics of military leadership in a representative democracy that have escaped examination elsewhere.
