Post subject: combat footage from WWII

(View Full Screen/Sound On)B-29/P-51 Actual WWII Footage A great compilation of combat footage from WWII. It is 36 minutes long, The beginning is the planning and preparation for the bombing raids on Tokyo. At about 15-16 minutes they are running into flak as they prepare to hit the targets. Some great P-51 combat footage and then very good footage of the bombers in action. Recovery back at the take-off bases is excellent footage also. This was a time when men definitely were MEN!! It is obvious when you see our stockpiles on the islands that our industrial production sealed the fate of our enemies. We don't send a lot of our officers to ICAF, but that course might be as valuable as AWC to the successful prosecution of a war effort. Good way to spend some quality time .A 36 minute gem for those who at this time of year would like to trace the dots from Pearl Harbor in 1941 back to Japan in 1945 -- the Last Bomb. This is amazing footage. Notice the actual photos of the spent shell casings streaming out of the bottom of the P51s.

Still in the process of downloading. Only ten minutes to go. Mr. Green
There are several more videos of this kind at the Internet Archive. You can even download the Original "Memphis Belle" movie released in 1943.
