Review by Anita Faas (posted on 17-Jul-2007)

This is a great movie mainly because of its unabashed religious sentiment. No PC watered-down version of right and wrong, the movie shows what made America great and the courage that people possessed to keep us free. I'm not sure most of us are worthy of the tremendous sacrifices our previous generations made for us.

One of the best movies ever covering General Chenaults Flying Tigers. Great flying scenes of P40's. Obvious propaganda reflects the anti-Japonese sentiment of the times.
