The 405thA poignant love story of a young officer who leads his squadron of B-25 twin-engine strafer bombers into the heart of the enemy, first in New Guinea, the Philippines, Okinawa, and finally into Japan itself. Despite domestic problems back home and relentless hardships endured by his men, he vows the Fifth Air Force's 405th Bomb Squadron would survive. His marital problems would have to wait until after the war. The gallantry of the Women Air Service Pilots, WASPS, brightens an otherwise unyielding and indomitable situation.
