This film shows the role of Task Force 58 in the battle for Okinawa. The island is bombarded from sea and air. Japanese shipping and airfields and factories in Japan are bombed and strafed.

The story consists mostly of the fleet's three-month defense against Kamikaze attacks intended to isolate U.S. troops on the island. Many Kamikaze planes are destroyed and others crash on or near their targets. Sailors fight fires and repair damages caused by the attacks.
