Synopsis

Documentary about the part American glider pilots played in World War Two, narrated by Hal Holbrook. The role of these pilots was to land soldiers and weapons in enemy territory undetected in the unpowered aircraft - a task that required a lot of courage. The film uses rare footage and photographs to give viewers an impression of the danger involved in such a feat.
