World War 2 in the air and beyond on DVD Labor Day Weekend Sale


Want to know what it was it like to fly a real P-51 Mustang? Need a gift for a vet who flew one or his family? Wonder what life was like on a carrier fighting in the Pacific? Are you ready to be inspired and uplifted by the exploits of "The Greatest Generation?"

Now you can watch the complete, unedited original films from which virtually all of the short clips shown in cable channel documentaries are derived. There's a lot more surviving film from World War 2 than you ever imagined!

We have the largest collection of World War2 era aircraft & combat documentary films available anywhere in the world on full screen digital home DVDs. You'll experience everything from pilot training films produced by aircraft manufacturers to rare color documentaries shot in battle by combat cameramen -- and much more. Many of our aircraft DVDs contain complete pilot & technical handbooks with detailed info at no additional charge.
If sold separately, these manuals would double the cost of our DVDs, representing an exceptional value.

Unlike other historic film publishers, we have digitally restored many of our videos and have supplied footage for programs shown on the History, Discovery and A&E channels, PBS, the BBC and to air museums for video displays. Contact us for more info on our huge stock footage library.

We've moved beyond World War II aircraft. "World War II Classics," now includes outstanding Army, Navy and Marine combat and weapons training films, and we've expanded our post WW2 jet aircraft division into the 1950's and '60s with aircraft & documentary features from Korea & Vietnam.

Our orders ship on the same or next business day after they are received. International orders are welcome. If you live outside of North America our DVDs are not "region limited" and will play on PAL & SECAM players. And if you ever have a problem with one of our videos, we'll replace it for free - guaranteed.

Two feature films on one DVD
*News From the Front in North Africa 1942
Shot In Technicolor by US Army, Navy and O.S.S. cameraman in Morrocco, Algeria and Tunisia, November-December 1942. A new Archival release with color correction. Hands down some of the best color footage we have seen from World War 2.
T his was tough "on the job training" for the brand new American Army and Air Corps.
Highlights include: Very low  level Luftwaffe bombing and staffing runs against shipping, towns, troops and  and airfields by Ju 88s. He 111's and very rare shots of ME 210s flying right overhead. The Battle of Taboura unfolds in broad valley in a panoramic tableau right out of a scene from "Patton" -- and you get an armchair view of the action. German Tiger tanks and infantry advance in the open and are turned back by withering Allied gun fire. See a low altitude dogfight between P-38s. Spitfires and Messerschmidts, as photographed from the ground. Footage of tactical combat maneuvering like this between fighters is extremely rare!* A treasure trove of early war color footage of Allied forces, including Grant medium and Stewart light takes, half tracks, jeeps, and US and British soldiers in combat kit both at rest and in fierce fighting.
*Tunisian Victory

British feature length co production in very good  black and white film, reminiscent of the Academy Award Winner, "The True Glory."  This is the climactic final chapter in the defeat of Rommel's Africa Korps told in an epic, wide ranging presentation.
American, British, and French forces strike from the West in Operation Torch, landing in Morocco and Algeria,  the first major amphibious strike of World War 2. British and Commonwealth forces continue their drive from Egypt, through the Mareth Line in Southern Tunisia. And "action packed" is an understatement! You'll see all aspects of Allied air, sea, parachute and ground operations from beach landings through the final mass surrender of the Africa Korps, including a mountain of dramatic combat footage ranging across the North African front.  There's a wide variety of Allied and Axis tanks and armored vehicles featured too, along with many aircraft like the A-20, B-25,B-17, B-24, Spitfire,Hurricane, Beaufighter, P-38, P-39, P-40 and more in action.  The film has plenty of animated strategic and tactical maps that  make this complex operation easy to grasp.
Record Breaker: The B-58 Hustler Story DVD Volume 1
A pilot once said of the B-58
, "She looked like she was breaking the sound barrier just sitting on the tarmac." The B-58 wasn't just one of the fastest bombers of her day, she was one of the fastest military planes period. In the early 1960s the B-58 gained 14 speed and performance records, many previously held by Soviet aircraft.
* B-58 Bendix Trophy Race 1962 (Color) On March 5th, 1962, Capt Robert G Sauer & his crew in "Tall Man 55" took off from Carswell AFB, Fort Worth, Texas to break three transcontinental speed records in one day, over 4,500 miles -- in "Operation Heat Rise."
* B-58 Low Altitude Bombing Capability (Color) This film focuses on the low altitude sections of "Tall Man 55s" record breaking March 5th flight. Great views of the Hustler at very low altitude from inside & outside the cockpit at Mach two.

O.S.S. School for Spies in World War 2 - How to be a Secret Agent - Four films

John Ford's "Undercover: How to Operate Behind Enemy Lines" ( From the C.I.A. Archives) It's not everyday we discover a virtually unknown feature film by an Oscar Winning director, let alone one that contains his only speaking role in a talking picture. Hollywood legend John Ford directed this training film during World War 2 on the art of espionage for the O.S.S (Office of Strategic Services, forerunner of the C.I.A) and plays a cameo role as a secret intelligence officer. This is the first film ever made on how to be a spy in enemy territory produced by a secret intelligence service to train their agents.

House Search From the C.I.A. Archives. Another "hands on" agent training film produced by the O.S.S. during Word War 2 on the art of hiding (and finding) objects & secret information hidden in locations like homes, apartments, and hotel rooms.

Body Search From the C.I.A. Archives. In this O.S.S training film, a courier is caught. arrested and thoroughly searched by enemy experts -- and we mean "thoroughly."

The Case of the Tremendous Trifle - Bonus Feature! This fascinating film shows how various intelligence sources, including spies, interrogations of refugees & POWs, aerial reconnaissance and seemingly innocuous periodicals like corporate parts catalogs were tied together and used in the strategic planning and execution of one of the epic missions of World War 2, the bombing of the ball bearing plants at Schweinfurt, Germany.

NEW!
Operation Titanic: Shuttle Bombing Missions to Russia.
In the summer of 1944, 8th & 15th Air Force bombers and fighters flew shuttle bombing missions to specially constructed bases in Russia. You'll see unique footage of American and Soviet forces working together inside the Soviet Union along with exciting combat footage. A remarkable story
Hochfrequenz Kriegsführung (High Frequency Warfare) (In German) Developed by the Luftwaffe, this film showed the German people how high frequency signals were used in radio direction finding, signals jamming and radar detection. An attacking British bomber force is identified, their navigation signals are jammed, and fighters are vectored to intercept. Radar is employed to protect convoys in the Mediterranean, and radar jamming is used to cover the “Channel Dash” of the Battle cruisers Scharnhorst & Gneisenau during their escape from Brest.
Low Level Photo Reconnaissance of Bomb Damage, Germany, May 9th, 1945 The day after the German surrender, a specially constructed B-17G of the 652 BS (Heavy Reconnaissance) was dispatched on a far ranging mission to document bomb damage on key targets all over Germany, from very low altitudes that would have been impossible during hostilities.
Nine Advanced Flight Training films featuring the AT6/SNJ
Preflight Walk Around * Takeoffs, Approaches & Landings * Small Fields * Cross Winds * Emergencies * Wingovers & Chandelles * Wingover Rolls * Barrel Rolls * Formation Flying A great overview for any pilot in training! Probably the most produced "Advanced Trainer" in history, used by both the US Air Corps (AT-6) and the Navy (SNJ) and by many other nations as the Harvard.
And a 44 page AT6/SNJ/Harvard pilots manual in .pdf file formatwith photos, systems diagrams, performance charts, procedures & more.

Record Breaker: The B-58 Hustler Story DVD Volume 2
* B-58 Hustler First Test Flight On Veterans Day, Nov 11th, 1956 Convair's revolutionary delta wing B-58 "Hustler" supersonic bomber took to the skies for the first time -- and you'll see it all in this memorable color film
* B-58 Hustler: Swift, Capable, Versatile, Operational! This a film report from the US Air Force on the progress of the B-58 Program was produced by the Convair Division of General Dynamics in January 1961. Highlights include B-58 crews scrambling from their '58 Chevy to get their Hustler airborne; the 18th Sept, 1959 low level capability demonstration flight from Texas to California averaging over 600 kts at altitudes below 500', and 43rd Bomb Wing B-58s win SAC's 1960 Combat Competition, defeating 24 other aircraft in both high & low level bombing classifications. Outstanding color B-58 Hustler footage throughout!
* Airplane 11: The First B-58 Trainer The first trainer version of the Hustler, the TB-58, was delivered by General Dynamics to the US Air Force in August, 1960, the first of eight R&D aircraft (this was "aircraft 11" in the series) converted for that purpose. The biggest change involved converting the Bomber/Navigator station (2nd seat aft) to a  pilot/instructors compartment with instrumentation and controls.Highlights include great footage of the colorfully painted TB 58 training version in operation.
* Open Road III: B-58 MITO Tests  During the depths of the Cold War, SAC bombers had only 15 to 20-minutes to get airborne between the launch of enemy missiles and their arrival at US targets. That meant that the ability get US air forces on their way quickly and efficiently was absolutely essential for survivability, striking power and deterrence.  A critical element in this quick response was "MITO" - "Minimum Interval Take-Off."  This involved determining the optimum interval between the launching aircraft to achieve the fastest possible deployment. There's some beautiful B-58 take-off footage here.
* B-58 Ejection System Development The B-58 was the first aircraft capable of operating at sustained supersonic speeds at very high altitudes.  That posed new problems for crew ejection and survivability. This film, produced by General Dynamics and the US Air Force, shows the unique challenges in ejecting from the B-56 and the solutions that were developed over time.
* Escape and Survive Developed by B-58 capsule subcontractor and ejection seat pioneer Stanley Aviation, this film focuses on the design, manufacture and testing of the capsule itself.
* Convair TB-58A "Hustler" Flight Manual
 
Rare supplementary manual for the TB-58A, the training version of the Hustler.
