"In your first battle, your worst fight isn't with the enemy, it's with yourself," is theme of this gritty, no holds barred World War 2 training film, nominated for an Academy Award in 1944. Tens of thousands of American "citizen soldiers" were going into combat against a determined enemy for the first time. It was only natural to have fear of the unknown. The film follows three infantrymen into battle and records how each of them deals with those fears, each in their own way. It pulls no punches in showing the horrific experience of close combat.
RAF Airfront 1944
"Airfront" was the operational mission film series that supplemented the 'The Gen" R.A.F News Magazine" shown to R.A.F. service personnel. While "The Gen" had a breezy, "Life Magazine" style showing R.A.F. operations around the World, "Airfront" focused on individual missions and units, offering dramatic continuous action, from strategic bombing to on-the-deck ground attacks. These episodes contains episodes from missions over Northern Europe from pre-invasion Spring 1944 into August 1944. All types of Aircraft were featured, including Lancasters, Typhoons, Bostons, Mitchells, Mosquitoes & more.
Thunderbolt!
Exclusive additional footage! Restored with additional scenes & stereo sound
Added footage includes 64th FS "Black Scorpions," 66th FS "Terminators" and Free French P-47s, along with explanatory graphics. Thunderbolt!" chronicles the exploits of the P-47 Thunderbolt pilots of the "Fighting Cocks" of the 65th Fighter squadron, 57th Fighter Group. Based on the island of Corsica off the northwest coast of the Italian boot, the 57th FG flew from behind the enemy's flank. As part of "Operation Strangle," they continuously attacked highways, bridges, ammo dumps, railroads and just about anything that moved to choke off the flow of supplies to the Axis front line . This is my favorite World War 2 fighter documentary. I did a scene by scene color restoration, added 5 minutes of out takes & directional stereo sound. Zeno
What to do when your Sherman Tank gets stuck in the mud
& other "Field Expedients"
This film is an entertaining treasure trove of down & dirty inside info on how U.S. tanks and other tracked vehicles were kept rolling & overcame a multitude of obstacles in the field during World War 2. '"Field Expedients" were "Anything you can think of to keep your vehicle rolling." In other words, this film is a show case of good 'ol American know how solving problems in novel and innovative ways. Often times in World War 2, just getting to where you needed to go in your tank was half the battle. You'll learn how M4 Shermans & M5 Stuarts navigated a wide variety of obstacles, including deep mud, anti tank ditches, sand & boulders. How to repair common mechanical problems with simple tools or whatever is available around you
B-29s Attack North Korea plus Nose Art
Exclusive Documentary
" I created this original documentary from a recently found reel of silent, unedited and undocumented footage shot by the US Air Force in Korea in August-September, 1950, for a documentary that was never released. The highlight of the film shows an early morning briefing for 19th Bomb Group (28th, 30th and 98th Bomb Squadrons) at Kadena Air Base on Okinawa. Reminiscent of scenes from the World War 2 classic "Target for Today," the briefing is for mission against the all important rail bridges near Sinanju Station, North Korea and the port of Nampo, as part of the preparation for the Inchon landings and the breakout from the Pusan perimeter.
U.S. Navy Aerial Torpedo Attack!
Every once in a while, a previously unknown film comes out of the past that raises the curtain on a forgotten chapter of military history. This film does just that, illuminating the science of naval aerial torpedo attacks. Originally developed to educate pilots about newly developed torpedoes that could be dropped from higher (and therefore less vulnerable) altitudes and speeds, the film also gives a through grounding in torpedo attacks in general. You'll learn about depth setting, range estimation, target angles, leading the target, the effect of crosswinds, working with fighters and dive bombers during an attack, using radar, countering evasive ship maneuvers and much more.
World War 2 U.S. Army Nurses
Many service men's fondest memories from World War 2 are of Army Nurses who treated them, comforted them and often helped save their lives. The film shows American nurses in training and providing vital services in field & general hospitals, on board trains and in the air -- on all fronts, around the World.
House Search for World War 2 Spies
From the C.I.A. Archives, another "hands on" agent training film produced by the O.S.S. (Office of Strategic Services) during Word War 2 on the art of hiding (and finding) objects & secret information hidden in locations like homes, apartments, and hotel rooms. The story begins with an American industrialist working in a neutral country, who is working as an O.S.S operative. He has hidden a purloined chemical sample and other info in his apartment, which is soon searched by an enemy agent , who knows a few things, but doesn't know enough to find what he's after. The tables are then turned and the enemy agent's rooms are searched by O.S.S operatives, who do a much better job finding secret information.
