A tin can patrols inside Wonsan harbor on the alert, as their position is to draw enemy fire. The enemy's carefully concealed shore batteries and bunkered artillery require expert observation from destroyer gunners' mates and a high element of risk involved in detecting gun positions and eliminating them.
