A substantial treatment for an evidently unproduced film set in large part during the 1940 battle and evacuation of Dunkirk. Had it reached production, this would have been a timely undertaking for Selznick, involving one of his best screenwriters. Garrett's many credits include sole or collaborative work on the scripts for A FAREWELL TO ARMS (1932 version), NIGHT FLIGHT, THE STORY OF TEMPLE DRAKE, GONE WITH THE WIND, MANHATTAN MELODRAMA (for which he shared an Oscar), and many others.
