This is a unique film in Disney Production's history. This film is essentially a propaganda film selling Major Alexander de Seversky's theories about the practical uses of long range strategic bombing. Using a combination of animation humorously telling about the development of air warfare, the film switches to the Major illustrating his ideas could win the war for the allies. Written by

The film claims the German's used air power to break through the Maginot line to conquer France. In reality, the German forces avoided directly engaging the Line and instead completely circumvented it. See more »
Today, a war is very different than the last European war was. Now air power is the dominant feature of military operations. Air power can fly directly to the vital centers of an opposing state and neutralize them. It can destroy the cities, it can wreck the aqueducts, it can knock out the lines of communication, it can destroy the food supplies, and make the people helpless to resist.

whoa. animated explosions. cool. i only gave this film a nine because i hate war. but the animation is way cool.
this film is filled with one explosion after another. it becomes almost numbing watching submarine torpedoes slam into battleships and blow up. my favorite scene was the one that had the aircraft carrier being assaulted from above.
militarily this film seems like common sense military strategy. it's pretty much explained in layman terms through the magic of Disney cartoon storytelling.
the best sequences by far are the ones that take you through aviation history. the animation is terrific.
it's a strange film though, and it gives a eerie feeling like you are seeing top secret information or something.
mostly i found this film kind of funny because it was so noisy and hawkish. normally i find Disney good natured family fare, this film makes you wonder about the mind of the man.
this film is testosteroned and noisy and fanatical about war. makes it even more funny.
the military industrial complex is by no means cause for amusement. unless it's done by Disney.
