    Franz (Leonard Whiting) is in love with the Colonel's daughter, but the Colonel will not let a mere lieutenant marry any daughter of his. In order to further his career so as to wed the woman of his dreams, Franz makes love to a succession of women.

When he finds himself behind enemy lines, he heads off for yet another adventure involving a General (Curd Jurgens) and his mistress.
