български език
Джуди Бенджамин (Голди Хоун) е американка, която постъпва в американската армия, след като съпругът й умира в нощта на сватбата им. Подлъгана от подлия сержант Джим Балард (Хари Дийн Стантън), който я кара да вярва, че военният живот е много по-бляскав, отколкото е в действителност, тя е дълбоко разочарована в тренировъчния лагер. След като непрекъснато попада в неприятности, Джуди иска да напусне, но избира да продължи и преживява поредица от приключения, които накрая водят до повишение.

Český
Mladá a půvabná Judy má zřejmě v životě neuvěřitelnou smůlu. Jejím snem je pěkný velký dům a spořádaný manžel v něm. První vyvolený si ji ovšem vzal jen pro peníze a druhý zase umřel na srdeční příhodu během svatební noci. Navzdory šokovaným rodičům se Judy rozhodne rázně a odhodlaně změnit svůj život. Přihlásí se dobrovolně do armády, což si ovšem představuje tak trochu jako romantický výlet na Bahamy… Realita je pochopitelně jiná, ale křehká blondýnka se nevzdává a propracuje se až k parašutistickému výcviku. Její vojenská sláva by pravděpodobně stoupala, kdyby nepotkala dalšího muže. Stane se snad Judy konečně vdanou paničkou?

Dansk
Da hendes mand dør på bryllupsnatten, beslutter Judy sig for at melde sig til hæren. Hun erkender, at hun aldrig har levet et selvstændigt liv, og det skal der laves om på.

In der Stadt der Liebe entdeckt sie dann ganz neue Seiten an sich.

Judy Benjamin alig fér a bõrébe örömében második esküvõjének napján. Nagyon jó pasit fogott ki magának: művelt, jól szituált és szenvedélyes. Ez utóbbi tulajdonságát olyannyira a tökélyre fejlesztette, hogy a nászéjszakáján a szenvedély hevében a lelkét is kileheli. Mit tehet ezek után egy ifjú özvegy? A megoldást egy aktivistától kapja meg: irány a sereg! Ott aztán nem unatkozik az ember. Benjamin a sok megpróbáltatás után mintakatona lesz, akinek már esze ágában sincs polgári életet élni.

De onwrikbare spil van Private Benjamin is de verwende Judy Benjamin, die tijdens haar huwelijksnacht haar man verloor. De onweerstaanbare drijfkracht is een driejarig, all-in verblijf in het Amerikaanse leger. Maar wat doet Judy eigenlijk in legerlaarzen en -plunje? Men spiegelde haar het "nieuwe leger van vandaag" voor en, goedgelovig als ze is, hapte ze toe.

Polski
Jeśli kobieta potrafi żyć tylko przy mężu i prawdziwą radość czerpać z robienia zakupów, meblowania mieszkania, gotowania, występowania u jego boku, jej życiowe szanse śą tak naprawdę mocno ograniczone. Zwłaszcza jeśli mąż nagle zniknie z inną, czy przeniesie się w zaświaty, a ona zostaje na lodzie, samotna i bezradna. Taki właśnie los stał się udziałem Judy Benjamin. Pierwszy mąż odszedł, bo był hulaką i utracjuszem, drugi przeniósł się do lepszego świata w noc poślubną. By odzyskać równowagę wewnętrzną, 28-letnia Judy zaciąga się do wojska i trafia do kompanii,,Alfa", dowodzonej przez kobietę, kapitan Doreen Lewis. Pierwsze trudności zostają pokonane, wredna pani kapitan ukarana, a sześciotygodniowe szkolenie wzorowo ukończone i szeregowiec Benjamin trafia do bazy NATO pod paryżem. Owiedza tam przystojnego ginekologa, właściciela dużego domu i zakochuje się w nim.

Judy sa po smrti svojho manžela, ktorý nečakane zomrel počas svadobnej noci, rozhodne vstúpiť do armády. Hneď po príchode na svoje nové pôsobisko však svoje rozhodnutie trpko oľutuje. Judy napriek tomu zotrvá a na okolnosti, ktoré sa jej spočiatku zdali neprekonateľné, si postupne zvyká. Pôsobenie v armáde sa jej časom dokonca zapáči. Ale iba dovtedy, kým ju jej nadriadený nezačne obťažovať a dávať jej sexuálne návrhy. Preto požiada o prevelenie do centrály NATO v Európe.
