Adm. Jonathan Scott (Gary Cooper) has spent his entire naval career touting the value of aircraft carriers. His experiences as a pilot reinforce his belief that aviation is a key component of any successful military, though his superiors largely ignore him. When an encounter with a high-ranking diplomat turns ugly, Scott is demoted to pushing papers in a dead-end administrative job. Everything changes when the Japanese attack Pearl Harbor and Scott is offered the chance to prove he's right.
