Description
The incredible films in this 3-DVD set bear witness to the terrifying realities of World War II's brutal battles. Written, filmed, and narrated by Oscar winner John Huston, The Battle of San Pietro is a vivid record of the horror of war. Diary of a Sergeant and Thunderbolt are both introduced by Jimmy Stewart; the latter's unique color footage was shot from cameras affixed to P-47 fighter-bombers. Tunisian Victory is a stunning outline of the battle strategies of the U.S./British military operation code-named Acrobat, while Attack! The Battle for New Britain examines the inner workings of jungle warfare. The documentary Let There Be Light is John Huston's legendary account of the ordeal of shell-shocked soldiers. The Price of Freedom encompasses three films: Freedom Comes High, a tribute to civilian sacrifices; Pay Day, a Dr. Seuss cartoon on proper military conduct; and the propaganda film Our Job in Japan. Among the selections on the CD Marching Off to War are "Der Fuehrer's Face" by Spike Jones, "A Boy in Khaki, A Girl in Lace" by Tommy Dorsey, "Goodbye Sue" by Perry Como with Benny Goodman, "He Wears a Pair of Silver Wings" by Alvino Rey, "You Can't Say No to a Soldier" by Joan Merrill, "Sentimental Journey" by Doris Day, and "When The Lights Go on Again" by Vera Lynn. The DVDs and bonus CD are packaged in a collector's tin.
