Description by OLDIES.com:

WINNING YOUR WINGS - 1942: America enters World War II and Lieutenant James Stewart shows us the tens of thousands of aircraft being churned out by U.S. industry, opening new jobs for 2 million American men. Lieutenant Jimmy tells us that not only can we render patriotic service to our country, but there is nothing to impress a pretty young girl like a pair of gold wings on a man's chest! Starring James Stewart and Don DeFore.

NEWS OF 1940: Europe explodes in war. Allied forces are driven from the continent by the Nazis with 300,000 British troops barely escaping destruction at Dunkirk. As Roosevelt wins a historic third term, America begins to build its armed forces and industry in anticipation of war.

YANKS BOMB TOKYO -1942: Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle's historic bombing of Tokyo is filmed as it happens.

YANKS SMASH TRUK -1944: The Yanks deliver payback for Pearl Harbor as a huge carrier attack force assaults the Japanese Truk Atoll Harbor, sinking 19 ships and destroying over 200 enemy planes.

ROME FALLS TO ALLIES -1944: Advancing American and British columns enter the Eternal City on June 4, 1944, making it the first Axis capital to fall, while a jubilant populace rejoices.

INVASION! OF FORTRESS EUROPE - 1944: The greatest military force in history assaults the Nazis at Normandy on June 6, 1944. Highlights include rare footage of Generals Eisenhower, Bradley and Montgomery.

CAMERA THRILLS OF THE WAR: The grim reality of war is presented right before your eyes with highlights including the smashing of Japanese and Nazi air might, savage Pacific jungle warfare and captured enemy footage of a U-Boat attack.

U.S. MARINES CAPTURE IWO JIMA - 1945: The battle of Iwo Jima is filmed in color as it happened. From the amphibious assault to the famed flag raising on Mount Suribachi, to the ghastly business of cleaning out 20 years worth of underground enemy pillboxes with flame throwers, this rare footage presents an up-close view of bloody combat.

BONUS: OPERATION WORLDWIDE --The history and function of the Military Air Transport Service.
