World War2 in the air and beyond on DVD
Want to know what it was it like to fly a real P-51 Mustang? Need a present for a vet who f
lew 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 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, 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.

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!

World War 2 Fighter Tactics, Aerial Gunnery & Gun Camera Film NEW!
Eight exciting videos - all on one DVD!

* Fighter Combat Formations: Attack & Escort with Ronald Reagan
An experienced Army Air Force fighter pilot, played with his usual verve by Ronald Reagan, is called back from the front to lead a fighter tactics class in Flight School for rookie pilots. The film starts with the AAF way for forming. deploying and maneuvering fighter formations from two ship elements to 12 plane squadrons & how to take on enemy fighters and more.
* Offensive Tactics Against Enemy Fighters with James "Jimmy" Thach Learn the tactics US Navy fighter pilot's developed -- the hard way -- during the first two years of World War 2 fighting the Japanese. Narrated and produced by legendary World War 2 fighter ace John "Jimmy" Thach ("The Thach Weave") & animated by Disney.
* Acrobatics for Fighter Pilots featuring the Fairchild PT-19
This Army Air Corps training film covers the basic acrobatic maneuvers every fighter pilot should master before heading into combat, including Immelmans, loops, snap, half & slow rolls, vertical reverses and more.
* Flexible Aerial Gunnery: Making A Gunner This Army Air Force training film is the best look inside a World War 2 aerial gunnery school we have seen.
* 8th Air Force P-51 Mustang Gun Camera Film ( The origin of this video is a silent 8th Air Force information film showing 8th AF P-51 gun camera film shot in the snow covered Winter of 1944-1945, with brief unit IDs for each pilot. We've restored the video, added sound effects from real P-51s and included photos of most of the featured pilots with additional info and pictures of their Mustangs.
* 9
th Air Force P-47 Thunderbolt Gun Camera Film This color video is taken from archival collection of dark, faded silent film that we've been able to restore using digital technology. Once again we've added additional info about the pilots and planes and added real P-47 Thunderbolt sound effects.
* Recognizing the Focke Wulf Fw 190 This informative aircraft recognition film was produced by the RAF. Telling friend from foe was an essential skill for every combat pilot. Fine in flight footage shot from many angles of a captured Fw 190.
* Recognizing the Junkers Ju 88 (1943,7:00, Restored B&W)
Another excellent RAF aircraft recognition film. There's some very good Ju 88 footage here, including one of the intact examples that landed in Britain, shown in flight from many angles.
The Boeing B-47 Stratojet DVD
* Flying the Boeing B-47 New addition!
This comprehensive training film, was produced by the US Air Force to familiarize pilots and aircrew transitioning from prop driven aircraft like the B-29 to the new world of the B-47, the USAF's first jet bomber. You'll see a history of early US jet bomber development starting in 1943, followed by a thorough discussion of the Stratojet's flight characteristics, from pre-flight check through landing
* Stratojet: Meet Your Boeing B-47
You'll see the design, development, and manufacturing of the B-47. Then you'll follow a crew from SAC's McConnell Air Force Base (3250th Combat Crew Training Wing) on a training mission that simulates a night attack on a target in the US. There are some great shots of the Stratojet on the ground and in the air, including night air refueling.
* B-47 Combat Maneuvers In 1954 the Air Force conducted a series of tests that showcased the B-47's outstanding agility, doing “toss bombing.” The aircraft would approach the target low and at high speed, pull up sharply, open bomb bay doors, use momentum to literally fling the bomb towards the target and then execute the rest of a half loop Immelman turn so that they were flying back in the opposite direction. Seeing the big B-47 execute this maneuver (and barrel rolls too!) is truly memorable. Cameras located all over the aircraft give unique views during the test flights.
* Two extensive B-47 Flight Manuals

Expansion to Air Power Between the eve of World War 2 in June 1939 to December 1943, the US Army Air Force grew from 2,402 aircraft and 24,700 personnel to 65,000 aircraft and 2.4 million personnel - an unprecedented leap! See and hear how they did in through detailed yet easy to understand charts, information and dramatic film footage showing the growth of the US Air Force.
The AAF Report This fascinating film report on the state of the Army Air Force was prepared by the Office of Strategic Services (forerunner to the C.I.A.) and delivered to the American people by Air Force C-in-C General Hap Arnold in early 1944. We know of no better picture of the organization and operation of US Air Force power in the midst of World War 2.
Report from the Aleutians Starting on June 3, 1942, 6 months after Pearl Harbor, a small Japanese force occupied US territory on the Alaskan islands of Attu and Kiska in the Aleutian chain. It took US Forces a year to dislodge them under harsh arctic conditions. This classic color film, directed and narrated by Academy Award Winner John Huston, shows the first offensive steps of the rapidly expanding Army Air Corps at the dawn of world War 2 in the Pacific.
Air War in Europe 1943 This is a series of exciting films showing the rapidly maturing Army Air Force moving into high gear in the Fall of 1943. You'll see the B-17 "Berlin Sleeper" on one of her record breaking 102 missions. B-25 Mitchells battle the North African mud to move out to their new base in occupied Italy. "Thunderbolts Over Europe" shows P-47s taking on the Luftwaffe on a dramatic bomber escort mission. Thirty-three Martin B-26 bombers, protected by RAF Spitfires, hit ship yards, power plants and workshops near Le Trait, France.
The Battle of Midway Award Winning Documentary Directed by four time Oscar Winner John Ford This stirring documentary was shot by Director John Ford during the intense June 4th Japanese carrier plane attacks on Midway Island and by Navy Combat Cameramen abord the USS Yorktown during the epic carrier battle, along with color gun camera film of air to air and air to sea combat.
The Fleet that Came to Stay tells the high tension story of the defense of the Okinawa landing beaches by US carrier planes against Kamikaze attacks - some of the most exciting air combat footage to come out of World War II.
The Second Battle of the Philippines: The Battle of Leyte Gulf was the largest Naval engagement in history, swirling around the 1944 invasion of Leyte Island and the Japanese navy's surprise counterstrike. You'll see dramatic naval surface battles and carrier air footage.
The Life and Death of the USS Hornet tells the dramatic story of the legendary aircraft carrier, the USS Hornet (CV-8), from her launching by Newport News Shipbuilding on Dec 14, 1941 through her dramatic loss on 27 October 1942 after the Battle of Santa Cruz off Guadalcanal.
The Saga of the Franklin New Print! Inspiring documentary shows how the gallant officers and men of the distinguished Essex class carrier USS Franklin overcame incredible battle damage inflicted by a devastating bomb hit to save their ship and bring it home. The film also contains rare and informative color footage of late war Vought F4U Corsair and Curtiss SB2C Helldiver combat operations from the Franklin right off the coast of Japan.

The US Army Air Force in World War 2: Behind the Scenes NEW!

Four exciting films with two hours of digitally restored sound & video in excellent condition!

* Photographic Intelligence for Bombardment Aviation Top secret & never shown to the public, this picture is an amazing time capsule from World War 2. Starring screen legend Alan Ladd (Shane, This Gun for Hire) it's like a real life detective story, seen only by Air Intelligence trainees. “Smitty,” an American Captain in photo analysis stationed in a misty Scottish castle, becomes obsessed with a photo recon picture taken over Hamburg, Germany, that has anomalies he just can't explain. The story of how he solves this riddle using persistence, insight and World War 2 High Tech (including “Stereo Vision”) is a fascinating tale.

* Ditch and Live in a B-17 Produced for the eyes of Allied aircrews only. Ditching was a fact of life for stricken aircraft, from the frozen white tops of the North Sea to the Shark infested waters of the South Pacific. "Lt. Reynolds.” played by veteran actor Arthur Kennedy (Lawrence of Arabia), is copilot on a B-17 that ditches at sea. He's survives by pure luck, but the rest of the crew is lost due to a lack of preparation. When he gets his own ship, Reynolds vows that his crew will thoroughly trained in B-17 ditching.

* Learn & Live: Pilot Heaven Pilot deaths during training were all too frequent in World War 2, a grim fact that was kept from the public, but was a matter of grave concern to the Army Air Corps. Shown only to pilots, this wonderful film is a unique combination of an entertaining, sometimes surreal storyline, with practical nuts and bolts safety training.

* Bonus: Carl Sandburg's “Bomber” This dramatic film was produced and shown to defense plant workers, lauding and encouraging their important work. Three time Pulitzer Prize winning poet & biographer Carl Sandburg wrote the script for this stirring tribute to a marvelous aircraft, the B-26 medium bomber, and to the men & women who built them in the Martin's Marietta Georgia plant.


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
*
