This gripping documentary unfolds like The Great Escape,
a true-life wartime adventure story.

In 1948, as five Arab nations prepared to invade Israel,
a ragtag group of young men from around the globe volunteered to defend
the new country. Many were World War II veterans from the US.
Because of an embargo imposed by the Truman administration,
Americans risked losing their citizenship by joining the fight. 


Produced by Nancy Spielberg, younger sister to Steven,
this film celebrates the pilots who laid the foundation for the Israeli Air Force.
Despite their shoddy equipment, they exercised enough skill and trickery
to persuade the invaders that their small squadron posed
a far bigger threat than it really did, helping turn the tide of the war.
