Although she reciprocates, her parents will not consider her marrying the son of a small garage owner, who is also only a petty officer.Jamie, fit again, undertakes, with Duncan, the most hazardous operation of either of their careers when sent to rescue a French Resistance leader from under the very noses of the Nazis.

It is a time for heroism and sacrifice.
