Storyline

In the immediate aftermath of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Captain Victor 'Pug' Henry finds himself in command of a cruiser, the USS Northampton. His son Warren is a naval aviator on the USS Enterprise and son Byron continues his service on a submarine, the USS Swordfish. Pug's wife Rhoda continues her affair with Palmer Kirby and Byron's wife Natalie has a difficult decision to make when a German Foreign Office official suggests that she and her uncle Aaron Jastrow stay in Italy rather than travel to Palestine. Pamela Tudsbury and her father start a world tour where he will report for the BBC from the far reaches of the British Empire. She is quick to let Pug know that they will also be stopping in Hawaii.

Trivia

Although the USS Northampton is portrayed with the second main gun turret located aft of the bridge, which is incorrect, all of the WW2 US heavy and light cruisers that could have portrayed the ship had either been: scrapped; converted and scrapped; mothballed; or preserved as a museum ship. It appears that a ship was offered for use during filming and had to be converted. The ship used could not have physically had a second main gun turret included forward as this is pretty obvious, so it had to be added to the aft section behind the bridge. See more »
