Private Snafu has a secret: his ship leaves for Africa at 4:30. He's determined to keep it, but bit by bit it slips out, and eventually, the details end up right on Hitler's desk and the ship is engaged.
A solid entry in the Private Snafu series made for use by the US Army during World War II. Directed by Chuck Jones, this one focuses on the many outposts the Army had in different places during the war. We find our hero Snafu on a desert island with only a bird for company, complaining as usual. Most of the short builds up to Snafu actually helping out for once, without even realizing it. The message of this one is that there are no unimportant jobs in the service and even a guy stationed on a desert island can contribute. The animation is nice and the voice work is good. It's not as funny or creative as many other Snafu shorts but it's still an enjoyable one.
