* Medium Bombardment & Attack with the B-25 Mitchell NEW! (Restored)
This unique film was made to indoctrinate B-25 & A-20 medium bomber
squadrons transitioning from Europe to the Pacific, with a focus on
the North American B-25. These groups were primarily tasked with
ground and anti ship attacks, inflicting huge losses on Japanese
forces, far out of proportion to their numbers. Great footage of
extremely low level action!

416th Bomb Group Douglas A-26 Invaders Attack! Color Exclusive
original documentary Legendary SFP 186 Army Air Force combat
cameramen rode along with 416th Bomb Group A-26 Invaders during March
and April, 1945 with color film loaded in their cameras. The results
are some of the most beautiful and dramatic footage to come out of the
World War II. An added bonus is a scrapbook of remarkable 41th BG
still pictures.
* The Stilwell Road & the China-Burma-India Campaign NEW! (Restored)
The story of China-Burma-India (CBI) campaign is one of the most under-
reported, yet most dramatic, exciting and important actions in World
War 2. Narrated by Ronald Reagan, this is a very detailed strategic
and tactical account of the entire campaign in the CBI, from the
Chinese construction of the Burma Road in 1939 through the Japanese
invasion of Burma, Allied counterattacks, Japanese counterattacks and
the opening of the new Stilwell road to China in 1945. Lots of
dramatic combat footage on all fronts is supplemented by behind the
scenes looks at logistics, jungle hospitals and detailed maps that put
diverse operations in context.

the surviving footage about Normandy operations, this film will be an
eye opener. Great footage of glider operations and 82nd & 101st
Division paratroopers.
* The True Glory From D-Day to the Elbe Academy Award Winner 1945

American Writer-Director Garsin Kanin teamed up with Oscar Award
Winning Director Carole Reed and 3 time Oscar Winning writer Paddy
Chayefsky. They reviewed thousands of hours of film and hundreds of
pages of eye witness accounts and distilled them down to this fast
moving, exciting and inspirational collection of some of the finest
images, music & narration we have from World War II
