The films on this DVD serve two chief purposes - to motivate and to educate. The War Department produced clips of American soldiers engaging the enemy in fiercely fought battles in the Pacific sector - New Guinea and the Marshall Islands to be precise - are highly motivating and complement the others, which are intended to educate.
The clip entitled "Wood for War" is a beautiful treatise on the many uses of wood and the need for its preservation. The U.S. News Review, which you will witness in this DVD, solicits the cooperation of citizens in allowing a greater part of the national resources to be used for the war effort by repairing and reusing household equipment. The clip about a heart-broken fatherís plea to end the war through hard and honest work is particularly touching.
The final clip "The Army Nurse" provides an exhaustive insight into the extensive training given to nurses during the war.
Lots of footage of live action from hard fought battles and professionally designed lessons for those who fought the war from homes and factories make this DVD worth the time spent in viewing its contents.
"I love action movies and this DVD has plenty of action. Moreover, this action is the real thing and not some studio generated stuff. The men, the machines, the guns, the enemy and even death are all real and so were my emotions after viewing the many battles on this DVD. I was particularly touched by the scenes of Japanese soldiers surrendering to the U. S. troops on Marshall Islands. The humane treatment they received was proof of Americaís involvement in the War solely to protect and not to conquer. I think all those who support war must view the contents of see this excellent DVD."

"I had read about some of the famous battles our soldiers fought in World War II, and one of them was the battle on Marshall Island. I am thankful for the opportunity I have of watching some live action form this battle on this DVD. The graphic images of death and destruction reinforced my convictions about the dreadful nature of war. Thanks everybody at travelvideostore.com for this wonderful DVD."
