Schoendoerffer follows the men through the jungle as they are slowly annihilated in ambushes, in attacks, and by diseases. He captures the inarticulate anguish and solitude of each man trying to survive and of two in particular - a veteran sargeant to whom battle is a way of life, - and a young French officer fresh from military school. Their impersonal, hierarchical and rather hostile relationship becomes an unlikely friendship
