This film takes the events at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and then goes on to a make-believe story of the Japanese attack on Los Angeles. General Joseph Stilwell (Robert Stack) is in command of the military protecting California's coast, and Sgt. Tree (Dan Aykroyd) is assigned the job of installing a 40mm anti-aircraft gun in homeowner Ward Douglas' (Ned Beatty) backyard. When California is attacked, Hollywood Boulevard lies in ruins, and craziness is experienced by the military and civilians as well. Special effects really help this film.

During World War II, a World War I veteran Sergeant (Lee Marvin) leads his squad in the First Infantry Division in combat from Vichy French Africa, through D-Day at Omaha Beach, and on to Germany. This top-notch adventure looks at war through the eyes of the foot soldiers who exist one day at a time in the dangerous war zone. Director Samuel Fuller, a WWII veteran, was disappointed when his film was cut to 113 minutes. In 2003, film historian Richard Schickel added footage to expand the film to better reflect Fuller's desired product.
