Narrated by Alexander Scourby. This is the life of "Vineger Joe" Stilwell, one of the most brilliant, hardest driving, and at times most difficult to manage and work with Allied commanders in World War 2. Criticized for the high casualties often sustained by troops under his command and his battles with Chiang Kai-Shek, Claire Chennault and British commanders, there is no question he got results under extremely difficult circumstances, using meager resources. The film focus on the critical role he played as commander of field operations in the CBI during pivotal fighting in 1943-44. Produced by the US Army after the war, the film tends to gloss over Stilwell's faults and the controversies surrounding him, but it's still a very interesting pictorial record of his life.
