Charlie gets drafted into the army. His squad has to go clear out a village. They see some soldiers that are alone and they run away.
As they chase down the enemy they realize a little too late they are running into an ambush.
They were taken prisoner and sent to a camp. They were marched by the enemy over the course of three miles on nothing but dirt roads.
along the way somebody whistled and all the captured soldiers made a run for it into the woods. Charlie almost gets shot but the man next to him gets hit instead.
As they sit around a campfire, Charlie and his squad discuss how they are going to escape. They come up with radeoing help.
The next morning at the chosen time they go to the arranged clearing and wait for the rescue helicopter. When it arrives enemy soldiers appear and start shooting. In order for the most people to escape somebody has to fight. Charlie steps up and holds them off and the helicopter escapes even though Charlie dies.
