Karl Ritter's racist propaganda film had already been finished in 1939; but then the Hitler-Stalin Pact came into being and the film was shelved until the German invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941. The year is 1760: it is the time of the Seven Years' War and the advancing Russian army has taken captive 100 underage Prussian cadets. The kids are mishandled by the raping and pillaging Russians, but with the help of a Rittmeister now in the service of the Tsar, they succeed in getting away. They hole up in a deserted fort and eventually sally forward to take back their military academy from the bloodthirsty, pillaging Cossacks.

Karl Ritters rassistischer Propagandafilm wurde bereits 1939 fertiggestellt, kam jedoch wegen des Hitler-Stalin-Pakts erst nach dem deutschen Überfall auf die Sowjetunion in die Kinos: Im Jahr 1760 – es ist die Zeit des siebenjährigen Krieges – nimmt die russische Armee 100 minderjährige Kadetten aus Preußen gefangen. Die Jugendlichen werden von den Kosaken misshandelt, doch mit Hilfe des ursprünglich übergelaufenen Rittmeisters von Tzülow gelingt ihnen die Flucht. Sie verschanzen sich in einem verlassenen Fort.
