Steve MacKendrick, nicknamed "Canada" because he claims to be from there, volunteers in 1940 for the British Army's paratroop school. He obviously has a good deal more experience and leadership skills than he lets on. Canada tries to become better acquainted with a pretty parachute rigger named Penny Gardner. She's initially put off by his attitude, but they eventually start dating. Both Penny and his new commander, Major Snow see potential (and a mystery that does not add up) in him, despite his strong efforts to avoid assuming any responsibility. Canada turns down Snow's offer to send him to officer school. After completing parachute school, Canada's unit goes on a raid on the German radar station at Bruneval.
