Summary
Film about newly-trained pilots in World War II, their by-the-book leader, and the plans of the U.S. naval leaders to lull the Japanese into a false sense of superiority. A group of young, eager Navy pilots become frustrated when their higher-ups enact a non-combat strategy against the Japanese. To make matters worse, the pilots must answer to a rigid, unyielding commander (Ameche). Against all odds, the men fly into action in the decisive Battle of Midway. Includes actual combat footage
