A timeless story of courage and cowardice set against the backdrop of the WW-II North Africa War. The film stars Major Robert Beckmann, a career Army Officer give-in the humiliating task of leading five Medal of Honor candidates back to a Army military base in North Africa.
Branded a coward during battle, Beckmann hopes to learn what these men, each of whom performed heroically under fire, possess what he lacks, But as the grueling journey through the desert progresses, the "heroes" panic, attempting murder, mutiny and rape as the quest for survival reveals their true character. Janet Louise Martin, co-stars as the seventh member of the group, an American expatriate accused of aiding the Enemy. At first contemptuous of Beckmann, she gradually comes to appreciate his quiet integrity as he leads his his mutinous charges through a desperate, action-packed odyssey. Filled with both exciting battle scenes and finely-tuned drama, their treacherous trek to the Army Base.
(They Came to Courage) is a rugged and riveting tale of a bravery far more enduring than the fleeting heroics of battle.
