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 »
Other than Joe Pants, this movie is so so. It's fun to watch that father from EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND as a drill sgt. He gets so mean that he even physically abuses his recruits!!! He is mean!! Like I said, unless you like Joe Pants, see the Ol' Blue Eyes version.
