World War 2 in the air and beyond on DVDAmerican Women Go toWar


Our DVDs make memorable gifts! 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 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.

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

NEW!
Two exciting films showing the isolation and neutralization of the mighty Japanese island fortress
*
Mission to Rabaul (New! - Digital Audio & Video restoration) This dramatic, visually high impact documentary film shows some of the most memorable, exciting, and extensive footage of 5th Air Force B-25G bombers conducting tree top level attacks with machine guns and delayed action bombs to come out of World War 2 .The first step in the reduction of Rabaul was the seizure of a string of Japanese bases along the Northeast coast of New Guinea. The film focuses on the decisive and revolutionary impact of the air component in the strategy, including high & low level attacks, parachute drops, and resupply, accompanied by a magnificent musical score drawn from Holst's "The Planets.'
* Attack! The Battle for New Britain
Stage two of the isolation and reduction of the Japanese fortress of Rabaul was the seizure of key bases at the opposite (Western) end of the 370-mile long island of New Britain, cutting enemy supply lines and providing advance airfields for continuing attacks on the stronghold. You'll see all aspects of the invasion, including planning, training, air attacks, amphibious assaults, and the intense jungle fighting to secure objectives by Marine and US Army forces. And there's more of those exciting low level B-25 strikes!

"Killer " Kane and the men of the 98th Bomb Group in the Summer of 1943, shortly before the heroic, costly Ploesti mission, at their desert base in Benghasi/Benina, Libya. There's an unexpected gem too. Soon after the Axis surrender in Tunisia, 9th combat cameraman Jim Bray hitched a ride on a  B-24 and filmed all the major North African targets the 98th had hit from the air, from El Alemein to Tunis. 
* Liberators Over Europe, 1942-45 New  From Ploesti to Berlin, you'll discover memorable Liberator scenes not not found anywhere else, including pulse pounding air attacks. You'll see B-24 crews up close too along with their ships.
