Story takes place at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii just before the attack by the Japanese on December 7, 1941. The main plot deals with the adulterous love affair between Sgt. Warden and Karen Holmes, who's married to Warden's commanding officer Captain Dana Holmes.Written by

There's a scene where Captain Holmes (Roy Thinnes) mentions to Sergeant Warden (William Devane) about "company punishment" for Private Prewitt (Steve Railsback). This is a non-judicial-type of punishment meted out for minor infractions, and usually consisted of extra duty, et cetera. It was given for punishment (by the company Commander, and/or company First Sergeant) instead of a court-martial, so nothing would show up in the soldier's service record. The only "official" punishment, under the Articles of War, was court-martial. See more »
All of the officers and enlisted personnel are wearing black neckties. At this time frame the Army had already changed to khaki neckties. See more »
The majority opinion can be wrong, and I think this is the case here, because I find the series much better and armonious than the sober film of the 50's, and more close to the original novel. Besides, you can enjoy one of the finest interpretations offered by Natalie Wood (a though but romantic heroin) and supporter Joe Pantoliano -the great resurrection of Frank Sinatra's spirit- who made clear in this production good part of his fabulous acting way that all of us would appreciate years later- thereafter,Pantoliano will consolidate as one of the best character actors of his time.
