World War 2 in the air and beyond on DVD Bomber DVD 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.

US Marines Attack! World War 2 Pacific Battles New!

Four Videos, digitally restored

* With the Marines at Tarawa Restored Color. The Battle of Tarawa was fought from November 20 to November 23, 1943 in the Gilbert Islands. Nearly 6,400 Japanese, Koreans, and Americans died in the fighting, mostly on the tiny atoll of Betio. The prize was an airfield that could be used to command a vast sector of the Pacific . It was the first time that the US faced serious Japanese opposition to an amphibious landing. The Japanese worked feverishly for a year to fortify the island. Fourteen coastal defense guns, including four 8-inchers, were buried in concrete bunkers. 3,000 elite Japanese Marines formed the garrison. The assault force was the 2nd Marine Division and elements Army's 27th Infantry Division, 35,000 troops in all. The hard fought battle was a costly learning experience for the US Forces. Most of the Higgins assault boats were stranded on a reef, forcing Marines to wade ashore under heavy machine gun fire. The three days of intense fighting that followed are recorded here in vivid color.

* The Battle for the Marianas The Marianas had tremendous strategic importance as a bases for long range B-29 attacks against the Japanese home Islands, for air support for the up coming invasion of the Philippines, and as a staging area for the planned invasion of Japan. Saipan was taken by the 2nd & 4th Marine Divisions and 27th Infantry Division in a battle lasting from from 15 June–9 July 1944. Neighboring Tinian fell to the 2nd & 4th in fighting from July 24th-August 1st 1944. 3rd Marine Division, 1st Provisional Marine Brigade & the 77th Infantry Division took Guam in fighting from 21 July – 10 August 1944. The Japanese defended these islands fiercely, almost to the last man. While giving a good strategic overview of the campaign, this film focuses on the battle for Saipan, the initial landing point and lynchpin for the the rest of the campaign. 71,000 Americans took on 31,000 well entrenched Japanese.

* To the Shores of Iwo Jima (Restored Color) “The toughest 26 Days in Marine Corps history.” The Japanese spent 20 years turning the 8 square mile rock of Iwo Jima into “The Gibraltar of the Pacific” honeycombed with miles of deep tunnels, pill boxes, block houses and gun emplacements sheltered in galleries dug deep into Mount Suribachi. Starting on June 15, 1944, the US Army Air Force and US Navy bombed and shelled the island for nine months,but when Marines of the 3rd, 4th & 5th Divisions landed on February 15th, Japanese defenses were largely intact, pouring withering fire on the beaches. What followed was what one Marine described as “26 days in Hell.” 70,000 US Marines & Navy Seabees faced off against 22,000 dug in Japanese, who rarely surrendered or retreated. Of the 22,060 Japanese soldiers entrenched on the island, 18,844 died either from fighting or by ritual suicide. Only 216 were captured during the course of battle. The Marines suffered 6,821 killed and 19,217 wounded.

* Enemy Weapons – Japanese This fascinating film, produced during World War 2 by the Signal Corps, examines small arms used by Japanese forces commonly encountered in the Pacific Theater: The Arisaka Model 38 .25 cal & Model 99 .303 rifles, the Swiss designed Solothurn Type 100 sub-machine gun, the Type 89 grenade launcher and the Nambu Model 1922 6.5mm Light & Model 92 7.7mm Heavy machine guns. Each weapon is shown and described, followed by field stripping. The Nambus are particularly interesting.

*A-26 Invaders Attack! Color Legendary SFP 186 combat cameramen rode along with 416th bomb Group A-26 Invaders during March and April, 1945 with color film loaded in their cameras. The result is some of the most beautiful and dramatic footage to come out of the World War II.
* A-20 Havocs in Color with 416th Bomb Group Scrapbook Color Rare color footage of 416th Bomb Group A-20 Havocs (aka Bostons) taken before the Group transition to A-26s in the fall of 1944 -- plus many memorable still photos from Group photog, Sargent Cachat.
* Flying the A-20 Bomber Flown as "the Boston" by the Brits on daring hedge hopping low level '"ramrod' raids over the Continent and as the "Havoc" by the USAAF inf SE Asia ,this magnificent attack bomber is one of the most under appreciated aircraft of World War II.
* A-26 Flying Tips WWII, Korea, Indochina, the Bay of Pigs, Laos, Vietnam, the Congo, South America, fire fighting in the Pacific North West -- this fantastic aircraft has seen it all! The most advanced attack plane of World War II.
* FLAK A fascinating World War II training film for pilots on the theory and practice of evading antiaircraft fire

Fury in the Pacific - The Road Back to the Philippines

Scene by scene digital image restoration! NEW!

* Army Air Forces Pacific AAF C-in-C General H.H. “Hap” introduces this sweeping summary of Army Air Force operations in the Pacific Theater from the attack on Pearl Harbor through the dropping of the atomic bomb. From the Aleutians to the jungles of Burma to hard fought Pacific atolls, you'll see a wide variety of aircraft in action, including P-47 Thunderbolts, B-17s, B-24s and majestic B-29s.

* Fury in the Pacific – The 1st Marine Division takes Peleliu Nine combat cameramen fell filming dramatic, intense fighting shown here. The islands of Peliliu and Angaur in the Palaus (6 miles apart) were considered stepping stones toward retaking the Philippines. The prize was the Japanese airbase on Peliliu. First Marine Division (1st, 5th & 7th Regiments, 9th Artillery) carried out the initial assault and bore the brunt of the fighting, to be joined later by elements of 81st Infantry ferried over from Angaur. Some of the fiercest fighting seen anywhere in World War 2.

* Action at Angaur: The 81st “Wildcat” Division's Baptism of Fire. The film follows the men of the rookie The 81st Infantry Division from R&R on Waikiki to a training landing on Guadalcanal to the beaches & jungles of Angaur. The 3 sq. mile island was needed to secure the flank of the Peleliu operation and to deny the Japanese strategically important phosphate mines. Detailed maps show the progress of the battle. As on Peleliu, beach landings were followed by intense fighting inland against heavily fortified, veteran Japanese troops surrounded by mines & booby traps.

* Appointment in Tokyo: MacArthur Returns to the Philippines This feature length film spans the time from the fall of the Philippine & the island fortress of Corregidor in May 1942 to General MacArthur's return to the islands in October 1944, with a primary focus on the battles to retake the Philippines. Copious combat footage of air, land and sea operations are supplemented by detailed maps that put it all in context. Just a few of many highlights include landings on Leyte, the air & sea Battle of Leyte Gulf, landings on Luzon and intense street fighting in Manila.

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!

World War 2 Resistance Fighters - three videos NEW!

School For Danger (Aka "Now It Can Be Told") Restored Audio & Video. This is one the most exciting World War 2 espionage films you'll see -- and it's based on actual events. What makes it unique is that virtually all of the characters play themselves performing the roles they executed during World War 2 -- from British secret agents to French Resistance fighters to special mission RAF pilots and operational commanders. Produced by the RAF, this remarkable film on British S.O.E.(Special Operations Executive) wartime espionage operations, including sabotage and intelligence gathering, in occupied France was shot on location after the Liberation.

Denmark Fights for Freedom (10:00, B&W,1944) Restored Audio & Video. What if an entire nation stayed home & refused to show up at work to fight an enemy occupation? You'll see that & much more in this dramatic documentary film, surreptitiously shot during the German occupation of Denmark. It's an inspirational story of how an entire nation pulled together to fight oppression, through acts of sabotage and mass demonstrations. Inspirational!

The Battle for Paris (12:00, B&W,1944) Restored Audio & Video. As the Allies closed the ring on Paris in the Summer of 1944, most of German occupation forces left the city to meet them. The French Resistance leaped into action to take the city, using a combination of smuggled weapons, hunting rifles and captured enemy equipment. What follows is a dramatic "you are there" front row seat on resistance fighters battling German troops i(including a Panther Tank) on the boulevards of the capital, all filmed as it happened by citizen cameraman. Action packed!
