When Danny and Rafe have to get a medical check, Rafe falls in love with one of the nurses, Evelyn. Evelyn also falls in love with Rafe and they get an affair. Unfortunately for Evelyn and Danny, Rafe gets asked to fly in the British Eagle Squadron. Rafe goes to England. Danny and Evelyn go to Pearl Harbour.
One day, Rafe gets in a fight with some German pilots. They shoot his aeroplane down and everybody thinks Rafe is dead.
When Rafe comes back later that day and finds out about Danny and Evelyn, he is furious. At the same time, Japan starts bombing the ships that are anchored in Pearl Harbour. Danny and Rafe get in to a plane as soon as they can and start bombing the Japanese. But they can never compete with them. Many people have died.
Danny and Rafe are asked to help America to take revenge at Japan. Evelyn doesn’t want them to, because she still loves them and she’s pregnant with Danny’s baby. She doesn’t tell Danny, but she does tell Rafe. Danny and Rafe go to Japan anyway and there, Danny dies.
Rafe goes back to America and he and Evelyn raise Danny’s child.
