Colonel O'Hara (Tim McCoy) dashing young officer of Braddock's staff is aided to escape from the French by Rene (Joan), daughter of commandant whom he worships. When the positions are reversed and she is his prisoner of war she willingly consents to become his prisoner for life. The costumes of the period offer a pleasing contrast to the interesting sequences ... in which are seen such historical figures as Washington and Braddock. The latter's disastrous defeat is the film's highlight and it is carried out with realism. (from MPN April 8, 1927).

Film Daily had this to say, "Colonel Tim McCoy, a handsome soldier and a fine actor, mostly because he doesn't act. He is natural at time. Joan Crawford the lady sought and Roy D'Arcy up to usual deviltry."
