World War2 in the air and beyond on DVD
NEW DVD!

Want to know what it was it like to fly a real P-51 Mustang? Need a present for a vet who flew one or his family? Are you ready to be inspired and uplifted by the exploits of "The Greatest Generation?" Now you can watch the full, complete, unedited original films from World War 2, the Korean War & the Vietnam War from which virtually all the short clips shown on cable channel documentaries are taken. There's a lot more surviving film than you see on TV or ever imagined.

We have the largest collection of World War2 era aircraft & combat documentary films available anywhere in the world
.
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, 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.

American Armored Combat Power 1941-1960
Seven films & two training manuals NEW
* Armored Combat Power Starts with a concise history of armored combat from chariots & medieval body armor through the introduction of tanks in World War 1, Blitzkrieg in World War 2 and the Korean War. Then you'll learn about the cold war armored arsenal including M47 and M-48 tanks, M84 heavy mortar carriers, M42 40mm antiaircraft vehicles and self propelled 105mm, 155mm & 8' self propelled artillery and then see them in a dramatic (& explosive!) live fire exercise at Fort Knox Kentucky. You'll learn about the roles, weapons and composition of the basic elements of an armored including tank, armored infantry, scout, and armored infantry platoons and self propelled artillery
* Seek, Strike & Destroy: The Camp Hood Tank Destroyer Training School (1943, B&W,10:00) The film begins with rare footage of Gen. A.D. Bruce open in the brand new tank destroyer training facility at the just completed Camp (later Fort) Hood army base, near Killeen,TX. The Army's first tank destroyer, which is featured here, was the “T12/M3 Gun Motor Carriage,” a modified M-3 half track with a 75mm M1897A4 gun mounted in the rear, which was a a adaptation of the quick firing “French 75.”
* Tank Destroyer 3" Gun Motor Carriage M10 The M10 was the much more advanced successes to the half track T12/M3. Based on a M4 Sherman Tank chassis, it mounted a high velocity 3' (90mm) gun, which, like the German 88, was an adaptation of an anti-aircraft gun.
* Ordnance Repairs & Field Expedients for Tracked Vehicles This is a treasure trove of inside, down & dirty info on how tanks and other armored vehicles were kept rolling & overcame a multitude of obstacles in the field during World War 2.'"Field Expedients' were 'Anything you can do think of to keep your vehicle rolling.' in other words, it's a show case of good American Know How solving problems in novel and innovative ways.
* American Armored Force You'll see a strategic tactical analysis of the use of tanks armor in the Korean War from the the initial attack by the North through cessation of hostilities Next there's a discussion of the role and of tanks in modern warfare including how armor and infantry work in concert during an advance.
* Deployment of a Tank Company Team for Night Attack This is a fascinating look at planning and deployment of an armored force for a night attack at company platoon level.
Birth of a Tank:The M48 (1955,28:00,B&W) The M48 was the first American battle tank designed & built entirely after the end of World War 2. As such it incorporated lessons learn in Europe and in Korea where United Nations forces encountered Soviet Armor for the first time. This very thorough documentary covers all elements of development from initial needs assessment, design, testing systems & prototypes through introduction & training.

Two bonus World War 2 manuals

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 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 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.
Plus
*

Seven Films

* Flying the Sikorsky H-19 Chicasaw Helicopter Transitional training with the Sikorsky H-19. The Sikorsky H-19 and its subsequent variants were workhorse utility helicopters for all branches of the U.S. military and many allied forces in the 1950s & 60s, playing prominent roles in conflicts from Korea through the Vietnam War and in many civilian rescue operations.The film covers eight steps: Pre-flight Inspection, Cockpit Procedures, Taxiing, Hovering, Takeoff, Auto-rotation, Approach and Engine Shutdown. The film offers very detailed views of this classic "Chopper," inside and out.

* Bell AH-1J and AH-1T SeaCobra Attack Helicopters in Combat The U.S. Marine Corps H-1J and AH-1T SeaCobra helicopters are twin engined variants of the Army's AH-1G Huey Cobras, which had been introduced during the Vietnam War.The Marine Cobras saw limited action at the end of the Vietnam War and then in in Grenada in 1983, the Gulf War, Afghanistan, and Operation Iraqi freedom.. nautical miles. They can reach speed of 170 knots , cruise at 140, have a range of 100 miles and are IFR equipped for all weather and night operations. They can mount a wide range of weapons.The film shows Marine Cobras performing critical missions, mostly in support of amphibious landings.

* USAF 20th Helicopter Squadron CH-3C Jolly Green Giants in Vietnam
Operation Double Eagle in late January, 1966, was the largest Marine amphibious assault since the Korean War and the largest conducted during the Vietnam War. 5,000 "Delta Force" marines from 1st Marines, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marines, 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines, and 2nd Battalion, 9th Marines landed by ship and helicopter in southern Quang Ngai Province near Duc Pho. Great quality color footage shows USAF 20th Squadron "Jolly Green Giant" CH-3C helos operating out of Danang supporting the amphibious landing in a variety of roles including ferrying 105mm howitzers from "Red Beach" inland to forward fire bases, transporting causalities and captured VC, bringing in spare parts and ferrying civilians from the combat zone to safe havens.

* Shotgun Rider: Huey Helicopter Door Gunners in the Vietnam War One of the iconic images from the War in Vietnam is of U.S army door gunners firing M-60 machine gun bursts from a low flying Huey into the jungle below. This fascinating film shows all aspects of door gunner duty, from training through deployment in front line units in Vietnam. And the film isn't just about these 'Shotgun Riders," it's also an informative look at all aspects of Huey Attack Helicopter operations & tactics in Vietnam.

* Chopper Pilot Often called "The Helicopter War," Vietnam produced an explosion in demand for trained pilots & crew. Starting with basic classroom work on aerodynamics, engineering & more at Fort Walters Training Center, promising students, soon move on to to basic flight school in the minuscule TH 155 trainer to learn basic flight controls & helicopter handling and then on to their first solo flight. (Then a veteran military instructor takes over to teach them advances skills, including low level cross country flying, navigation, formation flying and recon work. Those that pass the test move on to Ft. Rucker, Alabama for advanced training ion the lager TH13T, including instruments, ADF and GCa. The next step up is to the ubiquitous Huey UH1 and includes basic maintenance and familiarization with the Huey gunship variant. Training culminates in an 8 Day "Field Problem," where everything is done to simulate operating in real combat conditions doing a variety of missions, including heavy lifting, recon, transport & LZ support.

Boeing CH-47 Chinook Airlifts Chaparral Defense System (1977,Color,25:00)
From their inception Helicopters were seen as ideal carriers for transporting loads from Point A to Point B in remote, inaccessible areas in a relatively short time. The Army's Boeing CH-47 Chinook is a prime example that could lift up to 10,000 lbs. This nuts and bolts, how its done film shows an Army team airlifting a M54 forward air defense launcher, mounting four MIM-72A heat seeking missiles, in an emergency situation in the desert by decoupling it from it's tracked carrier and transporting it to a hot spot to provide a ready to go defensive shield.

Bonus: World War Two Helicopters. (1941-45,B&W,Silent,10:00) These very rare archival film shows test flights of three of the first operational military helicopters in World War 2: the German twin rotor Focke Achgelis Fa 223 Drache (Dragon0, the German single rotor, forward engined Flettner FL265, and the American Vought Sikorsky VS 3000 Amphibious helicopter.

* Profile of a Flight Test Pilot
This film was developed by personnel at the Army Air Corps top secret Wright Field flight test facility to give pilots the low down on what to expect if they joined their aircraft testing program.
But, there is much more. You also get a look behind the curtain at Wright Field at some of the rarest and most bizarre aircraft produced during World War II, including one-off prototypes.
* Research Test of Convair Model 7002/XF92A Airplane at U.S. Air Force Test Base Muroc, California

. This rare color film shows the 7002 being tested by Consolidated in 1948 at the Muroc Test Base in California. It's hard to imagine a more influential aircraft, as the delta wing was not only adopted in the Convair's F-102 and B-58, but also in a long series of other US, British, French, and Russian designs.
* X-15 1960 (1960, COLOR, 27:00) This documentary was produced by North American Aviation to show the development of the X-15 rocket plane. The legendary test pilot, Scott Crossfield is at the controls. The test site is once again Edwards Air Force Base. There is some beautiful color footage of X-15 flights here as well as scenes of support, development and construction.
* X-15 1961 Annual Report (1961, COLOR, 18:00) The X-15 program really takes off in a record breaking year with Joe Walker, Scott Crossfield, Niel Armstrong and other legendary test pilots at the controls, soaring past Mach 3.
