Another ra-ra Go America war yarn from George Lucas, this time focusing on a relatively unknown squadron of Black American pilots operating in Italy. As the war continues to take its toll on Allied Forces in Europe, the Pentagon brass, desperate to protect their dwindling numbers of bombers look to an option previously considered unthinkable. At long last they give The Tuskegee Airmen the chance to prove themselves in battle and forever put to rest the misplaced belief that blacks lacked the courage, discipline and intelligence to be fighter pilots. Against all the odds, with something to prove and everything to lose, these young airmen take to the skies to show what they can do.
