The Final Charge of the Calcutta Light Horse! Gregory Peck and David Niven star with Roger Moore and Patrick Macnee in this true story of heroism that turns the tide of war when eighteen middle-aged businessmen fight one last battle as The Sea Wolves . Goa, India. 1943. At the very height of World War II, in the neutral, Portuguese colonial enclave of Goa -- deep within the heart of British territory -- a Nazi spy ring reports to German U-boats, with devastating effect, on Allied supply convoys in the Indian Ocean. The British are desperate to shut down the operation but cannot use overt military force within Portuguese territory. Their men and materiel stretched to the breaking point, the Allies turn to the men of the Calcutta Light Brigade -- successful, middle-aged businessmen who last fought 40 years before. Now, this band of patriots faces a deadly journey the length of India, lethal enemy infiltration and overwhelming military odds in a seemingly impossible mission to destroy the secret German operation. Based on the book, Boarding Party, by James Leasor.
