Editorial Reviews

Experience the American Journey through our country's visual heritage in this historical recording provided by the National Archives of the United States. Part 1, guerillas parade in Tirana, Albania; Brit. Halifax bombers fly overhead. Part 2, a wreath is placed on photographer Damain Parer's tomb in Sydney. Flashbacks show footage taken by Parer: Brit. tanks and infantry advancing in Libya; Brit. mortars firing on Crete; troops advancing near Salamaua, New Guinea; a soldier helping a blinded comrade; a Japanese ship in the Bismarck Sea; and U.S. troops landing on Pelelieu. Part 3 shows how plywood is manufactured and used in boats, gliders, and Brit. Mosquito bombers. Part 4, elephants are used by the Brit. 14th Army to help in the construction of bridge in Burma. Shows a wood-chopping contest. Girls of the Women's Royal Naval Service moor a small boat, scrub decks, and steer a boat. British infantry, protected by mortar fire, assaults Kennedy Peak, Burma. Shows dead Japanese and captured installations. Supplies are unloaded from ships in Antwerp. British mosquito bombers take off from an English airstrip, fly over coastal towns, and bomb German ships in Nord Goulon Fjord, Norway. From the Office of War Information's "War Pictorial News" Collection. This historical recording from the National Archives may contain variations in audio and video quality based on the limitations of the original source material. The content summary for this DVD is adapted from an historical description provided by the government agency or donor at the time of production release. This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
