Masters of the Air: What the Apple TV+ miniseries says
Created by Spielberg, Hanks and Goetzman and written by John Orloff (Band of Brothers) based on the book of the same name by Donald L. Miller, Masters of the Air follows the men of the 100th Bomber Group (also known as the “Bloody Hundredth”) as they engage in dangerous bombing raids over Nazi Germany in prohibitive conditions, due to freezing temperatures, lack of oxygen and the terror of combat conducted at 25,000 feet in height.
The depiction of the psychological and emotional toll paid by these young men who helped destroy the horror of Hitler’s Third Reich is at the heart of the miniseries’ story. Some were shot down and captured; others were wounded or killed. Still others were lucky enough to return home. Regardless of individual fate, everyone received a tribute. Ranging from the bucolic camps and villages of south-east England to the harsh privations of a German prison camp and portraying a unique and crucial period in world history, Masters of the Air “it is a true and authentic cinematic achievement in both scale and scope.”
The cast of the miniseries is led by the Oscar nominee Austin Butler (Elvis). They join him Callum Turner (Fantastic animals), Anthony Boyle (The conspiracy against America), Nate Mann (Ray Donovan), Rafferty Law (Twist), the Oscar nominee Barry Keoghan (The spirits of the island), Josiah Cross (A winning family), Branden Cook (Tell Me Lies) and the star of Sex Education Dear friend.
