Rock Hudson and George Peppard lead a group of commandos on a desperate mission in this World War II blockbuster from director Arthur Hiller, an Oscar nominee for the box office smash Love Story. As Rommel's Afrika Korps sweeps toward Egypt and the Suez Canal in September 1942, Major Craig (Hudson) suggests that the Desert Fox can be stopped with a daring raid on his fuel bunkers at Tobruk. Colonel Harker (Nigel Green) then shanghais Craig to guide a team posing as POWs, "guarded" by Captain Bergman (Peppard), and a group of German Jews serving with the British, to their target. Produced by Leo Gordon, who also plays Sergeant Krug, Tobruk is highlighted by a spectacular, explosive finale in the tradition of The Guns of Navarone.
