Objective, Burma! 76 years old

An American platoon parachutes into Burma to take out a strategic Japanese outpost

Objective, Burma!

A group of men parachute into Japanese-occupied Burma with a dangerous and important mission: to locate and blow up a radar station. They accomplish this well enough, but when they try to rendezvous at an old air-strip to be taken back to their base, they find Japanese waiting for them, and they must make a long, difficult walk back through enemy-occupied jungle.
