On his final scheduled mission, Major Temple, a good friend of General Savage, is shot down and captured by the Germans along with four of his crew. The commander of the rocket factory that was the target of the raid decides to keep Temple and his cohorts at the facility to dissuade further attacks until he can relocate to a safer site. Because of the importance of the factory, Savage is forced to continue his plan to bomb on schedule, despite the risk to Temple. But thanks to some quick thinking by Temple, Savage is able to devise a risky tactic relying on pinpoint bombing that might spare the captives and still take out the target. Written by alexk-6

Did You Know?


In the opening of the Epilog segment, Frank is writing a letter to Major Temple's wife and the date at the top of the letter is June 15th, 1942. Since General Savage is a career military officer he would have more likely used the military dating convention of 15 June 1942 instead. See more »
