After Pearl Harbor, America prepared to fight for its life. In mere weeks, millions of civilians from farmers to bellhops were turned into battle-ready gunners, commandos, Seabees, pilots and bombardiers. A cast of mans men, including Pat OBrien, Randolph Scott and Robert Ryan, headline this prime example of World War II filmmaking that works on many levels: as a flag waver, an action picture and most memorably, a taut procedural (featuring actual training camp filming) that follows would-be bombardiersthrough the perils, camaraderie and conflict of training. Equipment fails, controls jam, men plunge to their deathsand the bombardiers soar on to face explosive, soul-testing action in the Pacific. **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
