At the end of the First World War, General Billy Mitchell (Gary Cooper) predicts that aeroplanes - so far used only for reconnaissance - will in future be deployed in battle and as bombers. His subsequent attempts to create an armed air force result in his superiors bringing him to court martial. Although hushed up by the military, the trial becomes a media circus when the press get wind of it.
