Our rating:

Joseph M Newman's tough western stars Joel McCrea as Sgt Vinson, a US cavalry sergeant who takes over command of the platoon when the senior officers are killed in an Apache attack. He has to lead the troop to safety through hundreds of miles of hostile territory, as the marauding Apaches continue to harry them, but his men begin to question his plans, particularly when he decides to attack a superior force. Is he seeking revenge for the murder of his wife by the Apache, even at the expense of his own men, and how can they stop him sacrificing their lives?
