A Japanese task force attacking an American island base...
While the Americans and Japanese battle over a secret island air strip, Taffy Tucker starts to recover from her amnesia - only enough to wonder how she ended up in the middle of a battle. She joins up with Marine Corp medical unit, and is put to use.
Joss and Patrick fret over the fate of Taffy Tucker and continue to search for her. They ultimately find her, partially amnesiatic, working at the field hospital. They help her fully regain her memory, and return her to base to face charges of being a Japanese spy.
Terry learns that the Chinese can't corroborate his sighting of a Japanese bomber crash, a fact that will bring him in front of a Board of Inquiry. The Chinese, admiring his courage, determine to try to find the missing plane.
Terry's mysterious crashed Jap bomber is found, and he gets promoted by the board from Cadet to Flight Officer, but must still observe battles from the ground until he has more experience. Things heat up between Grett and Terry.
