Target for Today (Documentary 1944, B&W, 93:00)
NEW 2/2016 - Digitally Restored Video & Audio from Archival Film Copy
*Target for Today is the classic World War II feature length documentary detailing a "maximum effort" daylight bombing mission deep into Germany.
There are no actors in "Target For Today." This film was shot on location under combat conditions and features the officers and men of the 8th Air Force going about their deadly business. All aspects of an actual major raid in 1943, from early planning through final touch down and crew debriefings, are covered in this very thorough account. Anklam. Danzig and the FW-190 plant at Marienburg are the targets hit. You'll see filmed operatuions from the high command down through Divisions, Wings, Groups & into Squadrons as the missions unfold. There are highly informative graphics showing how B-17 & B-24 squadrons were organized in the air for maximum defensive fire and how they were routed to deceive the enemy.
Although inflating the strategic bombing campaign's effectiveness through 1943, this is no sugar coated propaganda film. Heavy losses and the bomber crew's justifiable trepidation about making unescorted daylight deep penetration raids on heavily defended targets in Germany are graphically portrayed, including fierce German fighter attacks. Over 1 and 1/2 hours of engrossing World War II footage.There is some slight residual water damage that we have successfully minimized in the last few minutes of the film but, you won't find as high a quality video restoration of this classic film anywhere else.
Bombardiers" Information File (The BIF) NEW Addition! Bombardiers Manual 287 Pages in .PDF file format included on the DVD. This was a "must read" for all World War 2 US Bombardiers. Includes extensive information on instructions on the theory & practice of bombing in varying conditions including using computational tools, bomb sights, gyroscopes, autopilots & much more.
