A bomber plane limps home from a dangerous mission and the wounded pilot recounts, in dramatic flashback, the story of one soldier's bravery. Sworn rivals in civilian life, Sgt. Davis and Foxy Pattis (Chester Morris) are shot down behind enemy lines. Surrounded by hostile Japanese troops, they must put aside their deep hatred of one another in order to survive. Featuring convincing aerial dogfight footage and authoritative performances by Morris and Arlen, this wartime propaganda extravaganza depicts men facing certain death roused to a higher calling.
