In the months after the attack on Pearl Harbor destroyed the United States' Pacific fleet, the Japanese Navy quickly gained control of most of the Pacific Ocean. But a handful of brave men faced the might of the entire Japanese military knowing they must not fail--and knowing They Were Expendable.

Robert Montgomery and Academy Award winner John Wayne star as two sailors assigned to an American PT Boat (Patrol and Torpedo), a small wooden ship that relied on speed, stealth and firepower. Their mission, as they attack much larger, better-armed destroyers and battleships, is to slow the Japanese conquest and give the United States time to rebuild its fleet.
