Background: 125,000 United States troops are taking part in the big-scale operation 'Operation Sabre Hawk' in the Frankfurt district of West Germany. These winter exercises are the biggest ever undertaken in Europe. They are being watched closely by several N.A.T.O. officials...and Soviet observers. These scenes show a helicopter 'Field Airport' where several of the guests from NATO countries are seen speaking to one another and four-star U.S. General Hodes talks to high-ranking officers from several nations. The helicopters take off and paratroops go into action. Interested civilian onlookers watch as tanks roll through the streets of Wuerzberg. In the woods an 'Honest John' missile unit goes through its paces.
