Filmed from the U.S. destroyer escort, USS Frederick C. Davis (DE-136) in Anzio harbor, Italy during World War 2. A British Spitfire fighter flies almost directly overhead. A U.S. Patrol Torpedo (PT) boat is seen moving in the water. It passes near a Higgins Boat carrying several occupants. An American P-51 fighter plane flies past, in the background, at less than a thousand feet above the water. Next, two PT boats are seen near the Higgins Boat. Scene shifts to a PT boat creating a notable wake as it turns to port, past the camera, at high speed. It then turns to starboard and moves away at high speed.
