Rafe McCawley, a military pilot stationed under Jimmy Doolittle in New Jersey, along with his best friend from childhood, Danny Walker. Rafe is chomping at the bit to get involved in World War II, but America has not entered the conflict, so he is forced to fight on loan to the Royal Air Force in Britain, leaving behind his beautiful girlfriend Evelyn. After Rafe goes overseas, both Danny and Evelyn are transferred to the naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, where word arrives that Rafe has been killed in action. A grief-stricken Evelyn and Danny become romantically attached, a situation that becomes a lit powder keg when Rafe suddenly reappears, having survived his ordeal in the European war. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor ordered the best friend to undertake a top-secret and highly dangerous retaliatory mission to bomb Tokyo, once again under the command of Doolittle.
