World War II propaganda film aimed at the homefront, attempting to increase popular mobilization.
Ken Smith sez: This film was written by the distinguished Librarian of Congress and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, Archibald MacLeish. It shows the efforts of the troops in contrast to a civilian's idea that the war can't last much longer.

But the movie does..
Somewhat bizarre and vague fantasy thing the US Navy put out to talk about how the war is NOT over, and there still will be some deaths. A father marvels at the Connecticut skies while he reads that the War is just about ending. Meanwhile on the front, his quite attractive son is patrolling the skies in his open windowed (!!) plane. There's an attack, and he goes down, he soon dies with a friend, on a raft, floating in the ocean. Then a Military Champlain comes on and starts blabbering on in a rather bizarre and stilted way, you don't know whether he's reading from cue cards, a script or what, and HE also says the war is not over. Quite strange.
