The film is a drama set in World War II, following a group of United States Marines from boot camp to combat. It depicts the forming of comradeships and the relentless training which the battalion, led by Major "High Pockets" Huxley, has to undergo. In two battles (Guadalcanal and Tarawa), the battalion is only used in mop-up duties, but after an out-of-line argument between "High Pockets" and the commanding general, they are used as lead battalion in the battle for Saipan, suffering heavy casualties as they land on the exposed left flank of Red Beach. Huxley is killed and as they watch his body being carried off the field his grim-faced men fix bayonets ready to meet a Japanese counter-attack.

Besides describing the battalion's everyday activities, the movie also details the private lives of three of the Marines. On R'n'r in New Zealand, Andy Hookens falls in love with Pat Rogers, the widow of a New Zealand soldier killed at El Alamein. Pat becomes pregnant and they marry. Andy is tempted to desert in order to be with his wife and baby, but Pat persuades him that their lives would be impossible as fugitives and he goes back to his ship. Andy loses a leg on Saipan and speaks bitterly of a useless future, but the Master Sergeant, Mac, convinces him he is wrong and at the end of the movie Andy returns to his wife and child on her family's New Zealand farm. During training, Danny Forrester has an affair with an older woman, Mrs Yarborough, the USO manager. He realises there is no future in the relationship and breaks it off, to Mrs Yarborough's distress. While on furlough he marries his sweetheart Kathy. After being wounded on Saipan he is reunited with his wife.

In 1942, a group of young men join the Marines, leaving loved ones behind. Primed for battle, they are frustrated by many non-combat assignments, as we follow their wartime romances, especially Andy Hookens' involvement with Pat, a New Zealand widow. Andy and Pat have just decided that war requires them to 'live for the moment' when, in 1944, our team finally goes into a real battle

Battle Cry received an Academy Award nomination for Scoring of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture by composer Max Steiner.
