Summary
The war lover: In 1943, while stationed in Britain, arrogant Captain Buzz Rickson is in command of a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress bomber, but his recklessness is endangering everyone around him.
Hellcats of the Navy: The daring exploits of a submarine commander whose mission is to chart the minefields in the waters of Japan during World War II.

The night of the generals: In 1942, a Polish prostitute and German agent, is murdered in Warsaw. Suspicion falls on three generals, and Major Grau of German Intelligence seeks justice which ends up taking decades.
