17th Anniversary Sale Biggest Savings of the Year!
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.

NEW
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
An American-
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.

Four Films
The story of China-Burma-India (CBI) campaign is one of the most under-reported, yet most dramatic, exciting and important actions in World War 2. Allied forces were remarkably diverse: Brits, Americans, Australians, New Zealanders, Chinese, Indians, Gurkhas, Chindits, Burmese, Africans and local tribesman fought hardened Japanese troops in a remarkably forbidding environment, ranging from disease ridden jungle to the high passes in the Himalayas. Traditional frontal assaults were supplemented by parachute and glider drops, deep penetration operations by special forces, and the airborne seizure of enemy airfields to bring in troops behind their lines. Air power played a vital role in supporting ground actions and ferrying troops and supplies by C-46s & C-47s. Add to that that one of the great construction feats of World War 2, the building of the Stilwell road to supply China through some of the most challenging terrain in the world and flying supplies over "The Hump" and you have one of the epic tales of the War.
*The Stilwell Road & the CBI Narrated by Ronald Reagan This is a very detailed strategic and tactical account of the entire campaign in the CBI, from the Chinese construction of the Burma Road in 1939 through the Japanese invasion of Burma, Allied counterattacks, Japanese counterattacks and the opening of the new Stilwell road to China in 1945.
* Why We're Here in the CBI (1945, 33:00, B&W) This filmed report was delivered by General Daniel Sultan, who succeeded General Stilwell as commander of Burma/India operations. When surveyed, 50% of US forces responded that they didn't know why they were in seemingly obscure South East Asia, "fighting to save the Chinese and the British Empire," instead of Europe or the highly publicized island campaigns in the South Pacific. In response, the General shows the vital strategic importance of keeping China in the war and the essential role (and sacrifices) of British and Chines forces
* The Joseph W Stilwell Story This is the life of "Viniger Joe" Stilwell, one of the most brilliant, hardest driving, and at times most difficult to manage and work with Allied commanders in World War 2
* Traffic Control in CBI Gives a very rare and unique behind the scenes look at transport & supply routing in one of the most logistically challenging theaters in World War 2. Millions of tons of supplies had to be funneled through the busy port of Calcutta, loaded on trucks that were transported to the rail head at Ledo, to front line troops fighting the Japanese, and eventually to China via the Stilwell Road.
The B-29 DVD Volume 2
* B-29s Over North Korea: The 19th Bomb Group Attacks Bridges Near Sinanju 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 a scene from the World War 2 classic "Target for Today," the briefing is for mission against the all important rail bridges near Sinaju Station, North Korea and the port of Nampo, as part of the preparation for the Inchon landings and the breakout from the Pusan perimeter. And as a special bonus, we've added "19th BG Color Nose Art Scrap Book," a collection of remarkable Kodachrome slides taken of Korean War 19th BG B-29s
* B-29 Flight Engineer NEW! Excellent B-29 footage here, showing the aircraft in detail, inside and out. Systems management on the very complex (and often unreliable) B-29 was a critical function. The Flight Engineer was responsible for everything from an extensive per-flight check, through managing engines and other critical systems in flight, to ensuring that all necessary repairs and maintenance were preformed after touch down. All aspects of an Engineer's role are shown in detail in a complete mission in this film.
*The Last Bomb Outtakes Reel From the vaults of the National Archives comes a newly discovered reel of outtakes, expanded scenes, and new footage from the Academy Award winning World War 2 B-29 classic, "The Last Bomb." And there's a big bonus for fighter fans. The section of the original film that shows P-51 Mustang squadrons ranging over the Japanese mainland seeking targets of opportunity is significantly expanded and in very good condition, yielding some of the most exciting color gun camera footage we have seen from World War 2.
* Birth of the B-29  was produced during World War 2 to introduce the American public to the fabulous new Boeing B-29 Superfortress. The film shows how the war against Japan necessitated the development of a super long range bomber that could strike the Japanese Empire from distant bases in Japan, India, and the Marianas Islands. A highlight of the film focuses on a tour of a giant B-29 plant, showing all aspects of production.
* Air Strikes Against Japan
 was produced after the War using archival footage, complimented with additional maps and graphics. It gives a clear overall picture of the Allied air offensive against the Japanese home islands. While the video focuses on the deployment and use of the revolutionary B-29 Superfortress, you'll see much more, including Jimmy Doolittle's inspiring raid on Tokyo and rare late War footage of carrier based strikes against the Japanese mainland. A good overview of an under reported aspect of World War 2 Air combat operations.

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!

NEW!
Two exciting films showing the isolation and neutralization of the mighty Japanese island fortress
*
Mission to Rabaul (New! - Digital Audio & Video restoration) This dramatic, visually high impact documentary film shows some of the most memorable, exciting, and extensive footage of 5th Air Force B-25G bombers conducting tree top level attacks with machine guns and delayed action bombs to come out of World War 2 .The first step in the reduction of Rabaul was the seizure of a string of Japanese bases along the Northeast coast of New Guinea. The film focuses on the decisive and revolutionary impact of the air component in the strategy, including high & low level attacks, parachute drops, and resupply, accompanied by a magnificent musical score drawn from Holst's "The Planets.'
* Attack! The Battle for New Britain
Stage two of the isolation and reduction of the Japanese fortress of Rabaul was the seizure of key bases at the opposite (Western) end of the 370-mile long island of New Britain, cutting enemy supply lines and providing advance airfields for continuing attacks on the stronghold. You'll see all aspects of the invasion, including planning, training, air attacks, amphibious assaults, and the intense jungle fighting to secure objectives by Marine and US Army forces. And there's more of those exciting low level B-25 strikes!
