"The True Glory: From D-day to the Elbe" Academy Award Winner 1945"
Restored print from archival footage. "The True Glory" tells the
breathtaking story of the Allied sweep across Northern Europe, seen
through the lenses of hundreds of Combat Cameramen from the USA,
Canada, France, Poland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Czechoslovakia,
Norway, Great Britain and captured German footage. This is not just
the masterful telling of a story of a generation that needs to be
remembered and retold, it is an inspiration to us all. In these
troubling times, this is a film that will give you strength, make you
stand up and cheer and share with friends and family.

"Normandy: The Airborne Invasion of Fortress Europe" This film was
produced during the war to show the strategic and tactical planning
that went into the airborne component of the D-Day invasion as well as
document actual operations. Of special interest is the detailed
depiction of the development of glider transport and doctrine. Great
footage of 82nd & 101st Division paratroopers. If you think you've
seen all the surviving footage about Normandy operations, this film
will be an eye opener

John Fords "The Battle of Midway" Academy Award Winner1942. Restored
color print. This stirring documentary was shot by director John Ford
during the intense June 4th Japanese carrier plane attacks on Midway
Island and by Navy Combat Cameramen aboard the USS Yorktown during the
epic carrier battle, along with color gun camera film of air to air
and air to sea combat.. Highlights include memorable scenes from the
Marine Base on Midway, B-17s leaving to attack the Japanese fleet,
patrolling PBYs, action packed Japanese attacks on the Yorktown and
Midway, and up close shots of the Yorktown's squadron VF3 and their
F4F Wildcats.

"Landing & Re-Spotting World War 2 Aircraft Carrier Planes" During the
battle of Midway, when American dive bombers caught the Japanese
carriers Akagi and Kaga with decks full of refueling and re-arming
planes, the resulting catastrophe for the IJN was a turning point in
World War II. These unique films offer a rare look (in color) at how
US Navy carrier flight deck crews were trained to quickly land, park,
fuel & re-arm and relaunch aircraft

"World War 2 Machine Gun Shootout- US vs German" "Automatic Weapons:
American vs. German" uses a pair of memorable shootouts to compare the
relative strengths of the US weapons with their captured German
counterparts. A Thompson and an M-3 "Grease Gun" face off against the
German MP-40, and then the light and heavy versions of the American
Browning .30 caliber face off against the German MG-34 and MG-42.

"Saipan Superforts: Thundering B-29s!" Exclusive original documentary
with restored color & directional stereo sound. This amazing footage
shows the 73rd Bomb Wing, based on the island of Saipan in the
Marianas, operating against Japan in early 1945. You'll see B-29
pilots & crews on R&R and on mission in their magnificent
Superfortresses. There's a gallery of memorable 73rd Bomb Wing nose
art too -- all in living color. "The "maximum effort" take-off scene
is an awe inspiring combination of 18 cylinder engine roar and a
musical score that's guaranteed to raise goose bumps.

"P-38 Reconnaissance Pilot" starring William Holden. Photo recon
pilots (Photo Joes) had one of the riskiest, highest impact jobs in
the war. Flying camera equipped, unarmed, and often unescorted
aircraft -- in this case the Lockheed F-5, a "stripped down" P-38 --
pilots flew deep into enemy territory. Reconnaissance Pilot follows
"Packy Cummings" from basic training to the skies over New Guinea.

1940-45 vintage WWII Army & Navy films and pilot's manuals on how to
