The film follows both armies from the planning of Operation Torch to the liberation of Tunis. Interspersed in the pure documentary format are the narrative voices of supposed American and British soldiers (voiced by Burgess Meredith and Bernard Miles respectively), recounting their experience in the campaign. The British and American talk separately until the end of the film when they have a dialogue, agree to co-operate after the end of the war, with the other Allied nations to create a more just and peaceful post-war order.

Produced by the United States War Department in 1944, as a work of the federal government this film is in the public domain.
