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
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!
School for Spies in World War 2 -
How to be a Secret Agent - Four films
Ford's "Undercover: How to Operate Behind Enemy Lines" (
From the C.I.A. Archives) It's not everyday we discover a virtually
unknown feature film by an Oscar Winning director, let alone one that
contains his only speaking role in a talking picture. Hollywood
legend John Ford directed this training film during World War 2 on
the art of espionage for the O.S.S (Office of Strategic Services,
forerunner of the C.I.A) and plays a cameo role as a secret
intelligence officer. This is the first film ever made on how to be a
spy in enemy territory produced by a secret intelligence service to
train their agents.
Search From the C.I.A. Archives. Another "hands on" agent
training film produced by the O.S.S. during Word War 2 on the art of
hiding (and finding) objects & secret information hidden in
locations like homes, apartments, and hotel rooms.
Search From the C.I.A. Archives. In this O.S.S training film, a
courier is caught. arrested and thoroughly searched by enemy experts
-- and we mean "thoroughly."
Case of the Tremendous Trifle - Bonus Feature! This fascinating film
shows how various intelligence sources, including spies,
interrogations of refugees & POWs, aerial reconnaissance and
seemingly innocuous periodicals like corporate parts catalogs were tied
together and used in the strategic planning and execution of one of
the epic missions of World War 2, the bombing of the ball bearing
plants at Schweinfurt, Germany.

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.
