Editorial Reviews

This is a classic collection of three short films about the fight against the Japanese during WWII. December 7th-black and white-is a docudrama about the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the day that will live in infamy. Actual footage is blended seamlessly with recreated scenes. The Fighting Lady-color-shows the war adventures of aircraft carrier USS Yorktown and her brave crew. Actual combat footage and aerial dogfights makes it startling and amazing. To the Shores of Iwo Jima-color-This film shows real footage of the famous attack on that Japanese held island. Of course, included is the iconic scene of the Marines raising the American flag. Nominated for Oscar, the combat footage is must-see history.

These 3 short World War 2 films about the fight against Japan are some of the most interesting documentaries about that time."December 7th" depicts that day with grat realism using actual footage and reconstructed scenes. We also learn some of the names and faces of the brave men that lost their lives on that day. Interesting to note that many of the damaged ships are salvaged and restored for the war effort. "The Fighting Lady" is about an aircraft carrier. Once again we learn something about the servicemen and those that died in combat. Stunning air attacks, and some cool crash landings on the carrier deck also.Finally, there's "To the Shores of Iwo Jima", one of the most important battles in the Pacific.These films are intersting, informative, and exciting. But most importantly, it reminds us of the amazing sacrifices of our fighting men in one of America's, and the world's most pivital times.
