One of the iconic images from the War in Vietnam is of U.S army door gunners firing M-60 machine gun bursts from a low flying Huey into the jungle below. Originally, Hueys had three man crews, with one doing double duty a a door gunner, but it soon became apparent that adding a dedicated fourth crewman for that role had numerous benefits. Door Gunner trainees were volunteers. This fascinating film shows all aspects of door gunner duty, from training through deployment in front line units in Vietnam
Black Cat PBYs Attack at Night
Exclusive Edition -- New Hi Def Transfer
One of the least known stories of the war in the Pacific, these black painted PBY "VPB" ('Patrol Bombing") squadrons spread destruction and chaos far out of proportion to their relatively small numbers.The identity of the previously undisclosed secret World War 2 PBY base in this film and the men who flew from it are revealed for the first time in our exclusive release. Originally designed primarily as a reconnaissance and antisubmarine amphibious patrol plane, the big twin engined Catalina's super long range, all weather capability, capacity to lug both bombs and radar, ability to loiter for hours hunting convoys and operate from anywhere in the vast Pacific Theater made it an ideal naval night attack bomber.
DZ Normandy
The D-Day Airborne Invasion, June 6th, 1944

"DZ Normandy: The Employment of Troop Carrier Forces" was produced during World War 2 to show the strategic and tactical planning that went into the airborne component of the June 6th, 1944 D-Day invasion as well as document the actual proceedings. It was originally only shown to airborne troops as part of their training and was declassified after the end of the War. If you think you've seen all the surviving footage about Normandy operations, this film will be an eye opener. The film is narrated by Academy Award & Golden Globe winning actor Edmond O'Brien.

This film is an entertaining treasure trove of down & dirty inside info on how U.S. tanks and other tracked vehicles were kept rolling & overcame a multitude of obstacles in the field during World War 2. '"Field Expedients" were "Anything you can think of to keep your vehicle rolling." In other words, this film is a show case of good 'ol American know how solving problems in novel and innovative ways. Often times in World War 2, just getting to where you needed to go in your tank was half the battle. You'll learn how M4 Shermans & M5 Stuarts navigated a wide variety of obstacles, including deep mud, anti tank ditches, sand & boulders.
"The Gen€" was a film news series produced the Royal Air Force & shown to service personnel, selected scenes from which are shown here. Highlights include R.A.F. Douglas Boston€ Attack Bombers make a very low level attack on an armaments factory in France, "The Independent Air Force"€ & their de Havilland Mosquitoes, Group Captain Percy Charles "Pick" Pickard's last mission, a low level precision Mosquito strike to free French Resistance fighters from a German prison in Amiens, France and R.A.F. de Havilland Mosquito fighter/bombers use rockets and canon to support the Allied breakout from Normandy after the D-Day landings.

The Life & Death of the USS Hornet

This moving documentary tells the dramatic story of the legendary American aircraft carrier, the USS Hornet (CV-8) , from her launching by Newport News Shipbuilding on Dec 14, 1941 through her dramatic loss on 27 October 1942 after the Battle of Santa Cruz off Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands.

Jimmy Doolittle's amazing B-25 bomber strike on Tokyo from here heaving flight deck on 18 April, 1942. You'll also see memorable scenes from her participation in the Battle of Midway, including up close footage of the immortal heroes of Torpedo Squadron 8 (VT-8), all of whose members, except one lone survivor, Ensign George Gay, lost their lives flying unescorted against the Japanese fleet in their out-dated Douglas TBD Devastators.

Ditch at Sea and Live in a Boeing B-17
Ditching in water was a fact of life for stricken aircraft in World War 2. Lt. Reynolds, played by veteran actor Arthur Kennedy (Lawrence of Arabia), is copilot on a B-17 that ditches at sea. He's survives by pure luck, but the rest of the crew is lost due to a lack of preparation. When he gets his own ship, Reynolds vows his crew is thoroughly trained in B-17 ditching. He gives them the straight dope, step by step. You'll see training on land and in the water on everything from crew preparation, responsibilities, crash positioning, exiting the plane, emergency supplies, launching & operating dinghies to using an emergency radio, navigating, rations, first aid & a lot more.
