The Battle for Korea DVD 1
* A Motion Picture History of the Korean War This documentary, produced by the Defense Department, is a concise, easy to grasp history of the war told through maps, memorable"you are there" images and eye witness accounts. You'll learn about strategy and tactics while you see the dramatic eb and flow of the conflict from the North Korean invasion through the final cease fire.
* The 24th Infantry Division in the Korean War The 24th Division was the first US unit rushed into the conflict as a stop gap to slow the Communist advance and buy time for re- enforcement to arrive. In a series of extremely costly engagements near Osan and in Taejon that cost more than 3,600 casualties in 17 days, they delayed the enemy long enough for the defensive Pusan perimeter to be formed in the South.  Then they fought major engagements through the rest of the war.
* The 2nd Infantry Division in the Korean War The 2nd Division was one of the first units to arrive in Korea to reinforce the 24th on the Pusan Perimeter. After the breakout, they fought in some of the bloodiest and hardest fought battles of the war, including the capture of the North Korean capital of Pyongyang. When the War ground on during negotiations, they fought a series of storied engagements including "Old Baldy," "Pork Chop" and "T-Bone" Hills, and "Heart Break Ridge." One of the most decorated units in the war, they received a Presidential Citation.
The Battle of Korea DVD 2
* John Ford's "This is Korea: The Story of the 7th Fleet and the 1st Marine Division" "This is Korea" focuses on 1st Marine Division operations from the breakout from the Pusan Perimeter through Inchon and the epic "advance in another direction" from the Chosin Reservoir. Much of the film focuses on the all important role of very close air support between Navy and Marine Air Wings and combat Marines on the ground, a subject that Ford also explored in a World War 2 picture he directed during the same period, "Flying Leathernecks.It's another classic John Ford film.
* Operation Inchon This documentary tells the fascinating story of Douglas MacAthur's amphibious landing at the port of Inchon behind enemy lines. This brilliant move led to the liberation of the South Korean capital, Seoul, and a dramatic reversal in the course of the war. The 1st Marine Division, backed by the 7th Infantry, US Airborne and ROK forces surprised the communists at Inchon, making the most of naval and air superiority. All aspects of the assault on Inchon harbor and the subsequent taking of Seoul are covered in detail with exciting combat photography and illuminating strategic and tactical maps showing unit operations.
* Special Bonus: Technical Manual for the T26/M26 Pershing Heavy Tank,1945, 492 pages in Adobe acrobat .pdf file format. First deployed at the very end of World War 2, the 90mm gun equipped Pershing was the only tank in the US arsenal at the outbreak of the Korean War that could take on the powerful Russian made T34/85s.

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.

Colossus: The Rise of the US Army Air Force
The inspirational story of how a nation pulled itself up by its bootstraps to create the mightiest Air Force the world had ever seen. Four films with more than 2 hours of dramatic World War 2 footage, digitally restored.
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. You'll take a tour of all of all 15 "Air Forces" spread around the World, from the 5th in the South Pacific to the 8th in the U.K to the 15th in the Mediterranean to the 14th in China and many more. You'll learn how they started, what their strength and missions were, and best of all, there's a ton of vivid documentary footage showing daily operations from aircraft plants, training and transport to exciting air combat & more.
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. Rare early war color footage includes P-39 Airacobras, the first operational deployment of P-38E Lightning fighters, B-25 Mitchells, Navy PBYs and some of the first missions flown by B-24 Liberator bombers by US forces.
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. You'll see the original newsreel footage of "The Memphis Belles" last mission against the U-Boat pens at Wilhelmshaven, Germany, with combat footage not shown in the later classic feature film of the same name.

O.S.S. School for Spies in World War 2 - How to be a Secret Agent - Four films

John 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.

House 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.

Body 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."

The 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.

Includes interrogation recreations of POWs conducted by actual U.S. intelligence officers plus much more on intelligence gathering methods.
Merrill's Marauders and the 88th Fighter Squadron in Burma All the known footage of Merrill's Marauder's 5307th Composite Unit (provisional) covert  deep penetration mission behind Japanese lines through the Burmese jungle to capture the Japanese airfield at Myitkyina, narrated by the combat cameraman who shot the film. Bonus footage includes an up close look at 88th Fighter Squadron P-40 dive bombers flying out of captured Myitkyina airfield, giving close air support for the Marauder's assault on the town itself.

A serviceman undergoes hypnosis during treatment
John Huston's Let There Be Light DVD
Regular Price $7.95

NEW
"Let There Be Light" was commissioned by the United States Army Signal Corps at the end of World War 2. There are no actors in this true life documentary. For the first time on film, Huston explored the diagnosis and treatment of what used to be called "battle fatigue" or "shell shock" among returning servicemen. This condition is now know as PTSD - post traumatic stress disorder. Public showing of "Let There Be Light" was suppressed soon after completion and it wasn't released for 30 years because of a feared negative effect on recruiting and public morale. But it's a story that must be told because it's still highly relevant to our times.

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.

Resisting Interrogation for Allied Airmen in World War 2

Enemy Interrogation of Prisoners - RAF
1941
This film was developed early in World War 2 to show RAF aircrew what would happen if they were shot down & captured, their orders and duties, and consequences if they let slip even the most innocent sounding facts. The film is based on information supplied by escaped RAF prisoners and via British Intelligence. In this dramatization the four man crew of an RAF Hudson medium bomber fall into enemy hands and are interrogated by Luftwaffe intelligence officers
Resisting Enemy Interrogation - USAAF 1944
Produced in 1944 to prepare US airmen if they were shot down & captured, the film reflects the more hardline interrogation techniques used by the Germans as the War progressed. The crew of a "'B-99" bomber is captured in Northern Italy and taken to a Luftwaffe interrogation center. where they're put in hot boxes, given bogus "red cross" forms to fill out, exposed to fake executions, put in cells with informers, and threatened with harsh punishment. But, as in the RAF film, despite being told that they should only give their name rank and serial number, they often give important information away in casual conversations. Made in 1940's "Casablanca" like Hollywood style, the film features an all star cast including Academy Award Winner Loyd Nolan, Craig Stevens, Don Porter, James Seay and Arthur Kennedy, along with several familiar German and Austrian actors who fled Naziism.Carl Esmond gives a memorable performance as the crafty and debonaire camp commandant, "Major von Behn.".

Evasion: Evading Capture for Downed American Airmen (1950-B&W-92-minutes)
NEW!
As the Cold War heated up in the late 1940s, the prospect of being shot down on a photo reconnaissance mission over Eastern Europe (or even in a hot war) became very real. The US Air Force put together this dramatic feature length training film, shot in Hollywood "film noire" espionage adventure style, to teach downed airmen how to make their way home out of hostile territory.
All the capture evasion skills learned during World War 2 are put to good use, along with lessons learned by the CIA on how to operate in Eastern Europe.A B-29 is shot down far behind enemy lines. The crew is separated during bail out into small groups. What follows are a series of lessons on what to do -- and not to do - to evade capture and make it back to friendly territory

World War 2 still photos taken from German Newsreels including Junkers JU 88 bombers, Focke Wulf FW 190 fighter bombers over Russia, King Tiger Tanks, Luftwaffe night fighter ace Leopold Fellerer, and Panzerjager Hornisse (Hornets) armed with 88s

NEW
A treasure trove of World War 2 newsreels shown in Germany, occupied counties and countries friendly to the Axis. The pictures tell the story -- German combat cameramen were well known celebrities for good reason. "I regularly watch the cable history channels, but most of this footage is completely new to me or I had only seen brief snippets from it before. From a raucous ready room at a Luftwaffe Night Fighter base to the frozen steppes of Russia, this is a tremendous collection of combat and World War 2 historical footage." Zeno
