Abstract:

Stillwell road: An overview of one of the most extraordinary achievements of military engineering of the second world war and as well as the twentieth century--the construction of a supply road through the mountains and jungles of Burma in World War II stretching all the way from India to China, cutting through dense jungle and blasting through impassable mountains--all while under constant threat of attack by the Japanese. The history of the Allies in Asia during the whole of the war is also analysed, specifically concentrating on the engineering and logistical on the one hand, and the constant battle and military campaigning on the ground and in the air on the other. Includes archival footage of Gen. "Vinegar Joe" Stillwell, Flying Tigers Gen. Claire Chennault, Pres. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Gen. Claude Auchinleck, Gen. George C. Marshall, Adm. Chester W. Nimitz & more.

Attack in the Pacific: Completed just after President Roosevelt died and the Battle of Okinawa began in April 1945, this Armed Forces Information Film documents the fierce battles that raged throughout the Pacific Ocean between the Americans and Japanese during World War II. Stark battlefield footage of both naval and ground operations, taken by American and Japanese cameramen alike, graphically illustrate the epic struggle for control of this bloody theater of operations and its context as the largest surface area within which the hostilities of the Second War took place.
