In the winter of 1943–44, U.S. Army Brigadier General George Carnaby, a chief planner for the Western Front, is captured by the Germans. He is taken for interrogation to Schloß Adler, a mountaintop fortress accessible only by cable car. A team of seven Allied commandos, led by British Major John Smith of the Grenadier Guards and U.S. Army Ranger Lieutenant Morris Schaffer, is briefed by Colonel Turner and Vice Admiral Rolland of MI6. Disguised as German troops, they are to parachute into the German Alps, enter the castle, and rescue Carnaby before the Germans can interrogate him. After their transport plane drops them off, Smith secretly meets Mary Ellison, with whom he is in a relationship, and with Heidi Schmidt, their presence known only to him; Heidi has arranged for Mary to be a secretary at the castle in order for the commandos to gain access to it.

Although two of the team are mysteriously killed, Smith continues the operation, keeping Schaffer as a close ally and secretly updating Rolland and Turner by radio. He reveals that Carnaby is actually a corporal named Jones, an ex-actor and a lookalike of Carnaby trained to impersonate him. The Germans eventually surround the commandos in a gasthaus, and they are forced to surrender; Smith and Schaffer (being officers) are separated from the other three operatives, Thomas, Berkeley and Christiansen. Smith and Schaffer kill their captors, blow up a supply depot, and prepare an escape route for later use. They reach the castle by riding on the roof of a cable car and climb inside the castle when Mary lowers a rope.
