The main part of the plot unfolds in real time.
Lt. General Frank Benson:
Never tell a soldier that he does not know the cost of war.
Lt. Colonel Ed Walsh (Gavin Hood) incorrectly pronounces the words "wind-up the pilot" however only when correctly pronounced "wind-up the pilot" does the screenwriter achieve the intended meaning of "to get someone excited" i.e. "wind someone up" - - - the word "wind" needed to be correctly pronounced as the phrasal verb "why-nd" - - - unfortunately "wind" was incorrectly pronounced by Lt. Colonel Ed Walsh (Gavin Hood) as the noun "win-d" meaning "a current of air moving approximately horizontally, especially with enough strength to be felt" - - - NOTE TO IMDB STAFF Unfortunately imdb.com does not accept any of the special Unicode Characters that are required to be used to correctly pronounce "wind", SO I HAVE IMPROVISED - - -
