Summary
  • Brigadier General Billy Mitchell has devoted his life to the military, and his career to developing a superior air defense force for the United States. When top army brass fail to recognize the importance of air power following its crucial role in winning WWI, Mitchell initiates a campaign to change their minds--a campaign that will ultimately lead to his demotion and the most controversial military trial in U.S. history
  • "Gary Cooper portrays a controversial American hero in this electrifying, true story of the most sensational military trial in our country's history. It is the end of WWI--and the birth of aerial warfare. Though airplanes had only been used for reconnaissance, Brigadier General Billy Mitchell has forseen their deadly power and importance in future combat as bombers and fighter planes. But his superiors in the Army Air Service are blind to his prophecy. When Mitchell begins his campaign to build an armed air force against their will, they brand him a traitor and summon him for court-martial. Although the Army attempts to cover up the trial, it becomes an explosive media event that exposes the self-serving incompetence of the military and how one man's vision can serve to shape history!"--Container notes
