During World War II, onboard a ship in the U.S. Pacific Fleet, an event occurs unlike any that the United States Navy has ever experienced. A ship's captain is removed from his command by his executive officer in an apparent outright act of mutiny.

The Navy must then decide if the Caine Mutiny is a criminal act or an act of courage to save a ship from destruction at the hands of her captain

Evans F. Carlson is a war hero who has won a place in the hearts of thousands of Americans through his courage, his humanity, and his grasp of the issues of war and peace. Carlson the soldier and Carlson the great American has struggled against prejudice, complacency, and ignorance to realize his vision of democracy in American military organizations and in the world at large. Here is the picture of the magnetic military leader who built up the revolutionary Raider Battalion on the principles of 'Gung-Ho' and led it into the first land encounter with Japanese forces. But underneath the superefficient soldier and planner of battles is the American looking for a way to fulfill the promise of tradition. Carlson was raised in New England; he ran away from home, entered the Army, was sent to Europe, and learned about guerilla warfare in Nicaragua and Asia. His first visit to China opened his eyes to the struggle men were still making to achieve democracy. He lived and fought with the Eighth Route Army. He tried to tell the world what he had learned about military democracy and the threat of Japanese fascism. Officialdom, however, was not ready for his message and he had to resign from the Marine Corps to bring his warning to the American people. Time proved his predictions true, and after 1941, he rejoined the Marines and organized the famous Raider Battalion, which put in practice what he had learned in China and all that he believed about American democracy

"C'est à la demande du gouvernement que le pionnier Tom Jeffords se bat pour la paix auprès des Indiens. Il remporte une victoire éclatante lorsque, après avoir sauvé un jeune guerrier, le chef Apache Cochise lui accorde son amitié, puis la main de la princesse Sonseeahray de sa tribu. Tous ne veulent cependant pas que les fusils se taisent. Dans le camp des Apaches, des renégats déterrent la hache de guerre tandis que des Blancs, des racistes fanatiques, multiplient les provocations. Après la mort de Sonseeahray, tuée dans une embuscade, Jeffords et Cochise unissent une fois de plus leurs forces pour punir les coupables et éviter que toute la région ne s'embrase des flammes de guerre... "La flèche brisée" est l'un des premiers westerns à présenter les indiens sous un jour intelligent et positif, soit une véritable révolution à Hollywood..." (Source : jaquette)
