Cast & Crew
Maj. Harry Grigsby and his band of mercenaries are fighting in the Congo when they undergo a surprise attack launched by Kip Thompson, a former colleague who is now fighting for the opposition. Grigsby's troop suffers heavy casualties, and Grigsby is forced to return to London to recuperate. There he is contacted by a government official who proposes that Grigsby go to Hong Kong to resume his battle with Thompson, now employed by the Communist Chinese. Grigsby travels to Hong Kong, where his guerrilla command is again defeated by Thompson, and Grigsby is taken captive. Although he escapes, Grigsby is hospitalized with injuries. Katherine Whitely, the wife of Grigsby's Hong Kong liaison, visits him frequently and learns that he has tuberculosis; soon she realizes that they are falling in love with each other. They agree to begin an affair after she divorces her husband, but Katherine is killed in an automobile crash engineered by Thompson. With renewed fervor, Grigsby goes after his enemy. In the final battle, Grigsby is mortally wounded, but before he dies, he tosses a hand grenade that kills Thompson.
