Genre:

Synopsis:
US Rangers off-shore need a diversion to make a landing. The signal goes out to Mme Marie. But a brutal Nazi named Von Ekt is determined to trap her. Marie outwits Nazis by hiding in a rowboat mid-river, shooting grenades out of the air, staging fake roadblocks to rescue prisoners. Von Ekt publicly challenges Marie to wreck a tank-supply train - at the same time the Rangers want to land. She takes the bait and is caught, but escapes with a tear gas belt that also explodes ammo and wrecks the train. The Rangers land, and Marie is safe.

Synopsis:
A USN frogman team tries to sink a Nazi raider ship with charges, but one is killed and other caught. A sadistic Nazi frogman "schools" his squad by tossing around the Navy frogman, playing hide and seek, and locking him below. Still, he escapes, dodges a net, and reaches the raider. While the Nazis tackle a (dummy) charge, he sets off one of their own, sinking them and the ship. "Mission accomplished! School's out!"
