World War II Pacific News
It is not our intent to recreate battle scenes or stories through modern day documentaries. This has been done considerably. Instead we are making available a collection of War-era newsreels and other military films that were created during the war, and you will see what folks saw during the war at home in theaters, or in the work place. Some were issued as propaganda, and thus suitable for the times, but may not be politically correct for today's society. However, these are not fiction. What you see is what happened during each conflict, and some are more graphic than others. It may not be suitable for small children, although these are not rated one way or the other. It is all history during a time when the world was a different place. These are from 16mm films that have been professionally transferred.

In the future we will be offering a few more DVD's of various films we have obtained.
This collection includes 8 different Black and White newsreels that were made silent, with intertitles. Since it was silent we have decided to add an audio track of background music. This theme is the Pacific Theater of operations and begins with the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, and ends with the surrender of Japan. In between you will see a wide variety of events such as the attack on the Philippines with a profile of General MacArthur, the U.S. striking back with a daring raid on Japan as B-25 bombers led by General Doolittle fly off the Aircraft Carrier Hornet, Battles of the Coral Sea and Midway, and much more. Each film runs approximately 10 minutes. The eight films are as follows.
* Bombing of Pearl Harbor
* Philippines attacked and General MacArthur
* U.S. Navy Blasts Marshall Islands
* Yanks Bomb Tokyo
* Midway and Coral Seas Battles
* Iwo Jima
* Yanks Battle For Okinawa
* Japan's Surrender
