World War 2 in the air and beyond on DVD Fall Sale

Our videos make memorable gifts!
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.

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.
* The Bleriot Trophy (Color) In 1930 the French aviation pioneer established a prize for the first aircraft to average over 2,000 kph for thirty minutes. See how B-58 Hustler "Firefly" took the prize.
* Champion of Champions (Color) Isn't that the legendary star and war hero James Stewart climbing out of the pilot's seat of the B-58 that just touched down? "Yup!" -- and he's ready willing and able to give you his first hand impressions of an aircraft he is obviously has fallen in love with.
DVD includes two B-58 flight manuals with over 450 pages of detailed information.

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.

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.
