Movie Summary

Young stars Steve McQueen, Bobby Darin, Fess Parker, Harry Guardino, James Coburn, Nick Adams and Bob Newhart play a hopelessly out-numbered army squad in HELL IS FOR HEROES, a taut, explosive war film. It's autumn 1944, and Nazi forces along the Siegfried Line have the numbers, the fortifications and the firepower to break through. And a handful of GIs have little more that a dogged determination, and the ingenuity, to fool the Germans into thinking they represent a great Allied Task Force. But can they make the ruse last until reinforcements finally arrive?
