Summary: The planning and execution of a fictional airborne assault.
Description: An airborne assault in a fictitious country (Redland) is shown principally from the point of view of the RAF forces involved. Beverleys and Hastings are used to drop troops and heavy equipment, supported by rocket firing Hunters. The emphasis is on good planning, which forms the major part (reels 1 and 2) of the film.
