Synopsis

In the summer of 1941, at the peak of the war in the Western Desert, a bored and eccentric young officer, David Stirling (Conor Swindells), envisions a new kind of tactic where soldiers operate deep behind enemy lines. He enlists fellow Lieutenants Paddy Mayne (Jack O’Connell) and Jock Lewes (Alfie Allen) to make a go of his grand plan.
