This story is perfect about descrimination in America in the past. The military is a perfect example of how these descriminations can be overcome.
Jeffery Hunter's character learns the language and culture of 2nd Generation Japanese whose "Homeland" attacks these Japanese Americans' real homeland, at Pearl Harbor. The movie goer sees how empathy for others plays a part for almost all of the characters and when Hunter's platoon leader, David Janson, gets killed he has to undergo a transformation of how empathy can be ignored under trying circumstances. But he overcomes this, too.
The title is perfect for the story it tells.
