    "This was a broad overview report to carefully qualified members of secret oversight committees of U.S. Congress, as well as a collective archive of the Armed Forces Special Weapons Project.

    This film was declassified in 1997 after careful sanitization by experts to edit out secrets sensitive to technical information protected by the U.S. Department of Energy -- the successor to the Atomic Energy Commission -- and the U.S. Department of Defense."

    Reupload of a previously uploaded film, in one piece instead of multiple parts, and with improved video & sound.

    The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

    Nuclear weapons tests are experiments carried out to determine the effectiveness, yield and explosive capability of nuclear weapons. Throughout the 20th century, most nations that have developed nuclear weapons have tested them. Testing nuclear weapons can yield information about how the weapons work, as well as how the weapons behave under various conditions and how structures behave when subjected to nuclear explosions. Additionally, nuclear testing has often been used as an indicator of scientific and military strength, and many tests have been overtly political in their intention; most nuclear weapons states publicly declared their nuclear status by means of a nuclear test.

    The first nuclear weapon was detonated as a test by the United States at the Trinity site on July 16, 1945, with a yield approximately equivalent to 20 kilotons. The first hydrogen bomb, codenamed "Mike", was tested at the Enewetak atoll in the Marshall Islands on November 1 (local date) in 1952, also by the United States. The largest nuclear weapon ever tested was the "Tsar Bomba" of the Soviet Union at Novaya Zemlya on October 30, 1961, with an estimated yield of around 50 megatons.

    In 1963, all nuclear and many non-nuclear states signed the Limited Test Ban Treaty, pledging to refrain from testing nuclear weapons in the atmosphere, underwater, or in outer space. The treaty permitted underground nuclear testing. France continued atmospheric testing until 1974, China continued up until 1980.

    Underground tests in the United States continued until 1992 (its last nuclear testing), the Soviet Union in 1990, the United Kingdom in 1991, and both China and France in 1996. After signing the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty in 1996 (which has as of 2011 not yet entered into force), all of these states have pledged to discontinue all nuclear testing. Non-signatories India and Pakistan last tested nuclear weapons in 1998.

    The most recent nuclear test was announced by North Korea on May 25, 2009...

    WORLD WAR II CHINA BURMA INDIA THEATER 10th AIR FORCE HOME MOVIES 27554
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jun 28, 2016
    Shot by an unknown American camerman during WWII, this fascinating silent color home movie shows activities in India at an American air base located at New Delhi.. The person who filmed it was apparently part of the American 10th Air Force, and you will see the Headquarters building at 4:50, located at 43 Queensway. The film also shows the famed India Gate (not to be confused with the one in Bombay) at New Delhi, at the :35 mark.

    The air base is seen in more detail around the 6:30 mark, with aircraft including DC-3s and P-40 Warhawks on the tarmac. A sign saying "New Delhi Aerodrome" is seen at 6:34.

    Tenth Air Force was a United States Army Air Forces combat air force created for operations in India, Burma and Indochina during World War II in the China Burma India Theater of operations. It was established at New Delhi, India on 12 February 1942, around a nucleus of air force personnel newly arrived from Java and the Philippines, under the command of Major General (later Lieutenant General) Louis Brereton. In the years since World War II, the 10th Air Force has served both US air defense under the former Air Defense Command and Aerospace Defense Command, and reserve training and readiness programs under the cognizance of the Air Force Reserve (AFRES) and the Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC).

    AMERICAN FIELD SERVICE IN LIBYA AMBULANCE SERVICE FILM WWII NORTH AFRICA 43564
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jun 28, 2016
    Made in 1942-43 and directed by Major Stewart Benson, this film shows the activities of the American Field Service in North Africa during WWII. It was released in June of 1943 and a special premiere screening took place in Boston, Massachusetts.

    The American Field Service was founded after the outbreak of World War I, when young Americans living in Paris volunteered as ambulance drivers at the American Hospital of Paris. AFS participated in every major French battle with the French Armies, and the 2,500 American volunteers carried munitions and supplies as well as more than 500,000 wounded. AFS ceased to exist as an independent ambulance organization in World War I when the United States entered the war in 1917.

    The American Field Service was reactivated in 1939 at the start of the Second World War under the leadership of Director General Stephen Galatti. American volunteers drove ambulances in France, North Africa, the Middle East, Italy, Germany, and India and Burma. The 2,196 men of the AFS served alongside French, British, Polish, Australian, New Zealand, Indian and South African troops and carried over 700,000 casualties by the end of World War II.

    WWII WAR NEWS: BOXER BARNEY ROSS, ARMY DRAFTS WAR DOGS, LETTER WRITING, MALTA 43164
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jun 28, 2016
    Released during WWII, this restricted newsreel consists of various segments. They include at :58, the debut of the battleship USS North Carolina. At 2:50, in a segment called "Tell My Boy", a letter writing campaign is seen — started by Estelle Becker of the Civilian Volunteer Defense Office in the Bronx, New York. It is aimed at people who do not speak English but want letters written to their sons at war. At 5:45, a profile of boxer Barney Ross is seen. Ross was an American professional boxer and became a world champion in three weight divisions and was a decorated veteran of World War II. The film shows Ross' description of the fighting at Guadalcanal. In retirement in his early thirties, Ross enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in April 1942. The Marines wanted to keep him stateside and use his celebrity status to boost morale. Most of the athletes of the era, like heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey, had ceremonial roles in the military, but Ross insisted on fighting for his country.

    At 10:50, the U.S. Army's efforts to use civilian dogs is shown. Adorable images of dogs being drafted and then trained for use by the military police! Kennels are seen at 14:25, with dogs being trained for arctic conditions.

    The film ends with a look at the island of Malta, which is under siege by the Axis and one of the most bombed spots in the entire war. Luftwaffe footage is seen of German aircraft including Stukas making bombing raids on the beseiged island.

    U.S. NAVY STANDARD DEEP SEA DIVING OUTFIT TRAINING FILM 43424 NA
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jun 29, 2016
    Dating to the 1950s, this U.S. Navy film USING THE STANDARD DEEP SEA DIVING OUFIT gives an explanation of the hard hat diving suit, and shows how it is used in Navy operations. The diver's crewmen are shown, including the diving officer, diving tender and backup tender, as well as the phone talker. A time keeper or diving supervisor is also shown, as well as an engineer who forces air to the diver below. Finally, a standby diver is shown, fully dressed except for his helmet, ready to assist or rescue the diver.

    The film discusses basic procedures: descending to the bottom, working on the bottom, and ascending to the surface. At 7:00, an emergency situation is seen with the diving suit, one of several scenarios where divers can get into trouble is seen. At 8:12, a build-up of carbon dioxide is seen, with the diver adjusting his valves to relieve the problem.

    A standard diving dress consists of a metallic (copper and brass or bronze) diving helmet, an airline or hose from a surface supplied diving air pump, a canvas diving suit, diving knife and weighted boots. An important part of the equipment is the lead weights, generally on the chest, back and shoes, to counteract the buoyancy of the helmet and diving suit.

    This type of diving equipment is also known as hard-hat or copper hat equipment, or heavy gear. Leading British manufacturers were Siebe Gorman and Heinke. In the United States, the dominant makers were DESCO, Morse, Miller-Dunn and Schräder and it is sometimes known as a "Diver Dan" outfit, from the television show of the same name. It was commonly used for underwater civil engineering, commercial diving, pearl shell diving and naval diving.

    The helmet was usually made of copper with soldered on brass fittings. The windows are known as lights or ports. The front port usually opens on the surface by being screwed out or opens a hinge. The back of the helmet has two goose neck fittings. One has a non-return valve and is the connection for the air line. The other is for the diver's telephone.

    Later helmets include a non-return valve where the airline is connected, which prevents potentially fatal helmet squeeze if the pressure in the hose is lost. The difference in pressure between the surface and the diver can be so great that if the air line were cut on the surface and there was no non-return valve, the diver would be squeezed into the helmet by the external pressure, and injured or possibly killed.

    Helmets have a spring-loaded exhaust valve which allows the air to leave the helmet. The spring force is adjustable by the diver and prevents the diver's suit from deflating completely or over-inflating and the diver being floated uncontrollably to the surface. Some helmets have an extra manual exhaust valve known as a spit-cock. This allows the diver to vent excess air when he is in a position where the main exhaust will not function correctly.

    Training film for U.S. soldiers embarking on occupation duty in Japan. Written by Dr. Seuss and formed the basis for his latter 1947 Oscar-winning film, "Design For Death." This film was seen as too sympathetic to the Japanese and MacArthur worked to suppress it.

    VIETNAM HOME MOVIE BOB HOPE & NEIL ARMSTRONG at LONG BINH VIETNAM 43674
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jun 29, 2016
    Dating to 1969, this fascinating silent Super 8mm home movie (shot by an unknown soldier or airman) shows the preparations for the Bob Hope USO show, and then the show itself (starting at about 13:30). Long Binh was the biggest installation in Vietnam at the time. The film includes some truly memorable moments, including a visit from Neil Armstrong (24:00 mark). Armstrong had become the first man to set foot on the moon earlier in the year, and was on a goodwill tour in Thailand when he was asked by Vice President Spiro Agnew to make a detour to Vietnam. Armstrong and Hope remained friends for the rest of their lives. They were both outstanding Americans and patriots whose memories and accomplishments live on.

    Long Binh Post, about 20 miles north of Saigon, was the largest American support base in Vietnam, containing 3500 buildings and covering an area bigger than Cleveland. As of July 1971, the post boasted 81 basketball courts, 64 volleyball courts, 12 swimming pools, 8 multipurpose courts, 8 softball fields, 6 tennis courts, 5 craft shops, 3 football fields, 3 weight rooms, 3 libraries, 3 service clubs, 2 miniature golf courses, 2 handball-court complexes, a running track, an archery range, a golf driving range, a skeet range, a party area, and an amphitheater for movies and live shows.
    By 1972, Long Binh Post even had a go-cart track, complete with a starting stand, a public-address system, and a pit for on-the-spot repairs.

    At its peak in 1969, Long Binh’s club system had 40 bars with a net worth of $1.2 million, including $270,000 in cash on hand. If soldiers didn’t like club life, Long Binh’s retail stores stocked food and alcohol to host private parties at the pools, barracks, or barbecue pits. An unofficial brothel, a “male beauty bar” with salon services, and outdoor movies rounded out Long Binh’s offerings.

    Great classic film describing the lives of Eskimos who live by hunting and gathering on the coast of Alaska.

    Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound.

    Public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
    The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eskimo

    Eskimos (or Esquimaux) or Inuit--Yupik (for Alaska: Inupiat--Yupik) peoples are indigenous peoples who have traditionally inhabited the circumpolar region from eastern Siberia (Russia), across Alaska (United States), Canada, and Greenland.

    There are two main groups that are referred to as Eskimo: Yupik and Inuit. A third group, the Aleut, is related. The Yupik language dialects and cultures in Alaska and eastern Siberia have evolved in place beginning with the original (pre-Dorset) Eskimo culture that developed in Alaska. Approximately 4,000 years ago the Unangan (also known as Aleut) culture became distinctly separate, and evolved into a non-Eskimo culture. Approximately 1,500--2,000 years ago, apparently in Northwestern Alaska, two other distinct variations appeared. The Inuit language branch became distinct and in only several hundred years spread across northern Alaska, Canada and into Greenland. At about the same time, the technology of the Thule people developed in northwestern Alaska and very quickly spread over the entire area occupied by Eskimo people, though it was not necessarily adopted by all of them.

    The earliest known Eskimo cultures (pre-Dorset) date to 5,000 years ago. They appear to have evolved in Alaska from people using the Arctic small tool tradition who probably had migrated to Alaska from Siberia at least 2,000 to 3,000 years earlier, though they might have been in Alaska as far back as 10,000 to 12,000 years or more. There are similar artifacts found in Siberia going back perhaps 18,000 years.

    Today, the two main groups of Eskimos are the Inuit of northern Alaska, Canada and Greenland, and the Yupik of Central Alaska. The Yupik comprises speakers of four distinct Yupik languages originated from the western Alaska, in South Central Alaska along the Gulf of Alaska coast, and the Russian Far East.

    The term Eskimo is commonly used by those in the lower 48 and in Alaska to include both Yupik and Inupiat...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Point_Ho...

    Point Hope (Inupiaq Tikiġaq) is a city in North Slope Borough, Alaska, United States. At the 2010 census the population was 674.

    Point Hope town is located in the Point Hope landhead, at the NW end of the Lisburne Peninsula, on the Chukchi Sea coast, 40 mi. SW of Cape Lisburne, Arctic Slope at 68°20′49″N 166°45′47″W...

    Before any modern settlement, the Ipiutak lived here.

    The descriptive Inuit name of the place, "Tikarakh" or "Tikigaq" commonly spelled "Tiagara", means "forefinger". It was recorded as "Tiekagagmiut" in 1861 by P. Tikhmeniev Wich of the Russian Hydrographic Department and on Russian Chart 1495 it became "Tiekaga". This ancient village site was advantageous, because the protrusion of Point Hope into the sea brought the whales close to the shore. At Tikigaq, they built semi-subterranean houses using mainly whalebone and driftwood. Point Hope is one of the oldest continually occupied sites in North America. While some of the earlier dwellings have been lost to erosion as the island shrinks, it still provides a welter of valuable information to archaeologists on how early Eskimos survived in their harsh environment...

    The first recorded Europeans to sight this cape were Russian explorers Mikhail Vasiliev and Gleb Shishmaryov of the Imperial Russian Navy on the ships Otkrietie and Blagonamierennie. Vasiliev and Shishmaryov named this landhead Mys Golovnina, after Vice Admiral Vasily Golovnin (1776--1831).

    The cape at Point Hope was renamed by Captain Frederick William Beechey of the Royal Navy, who wrote on August 2, 1826: "I named it Point Hope in compliment to Sir William Johnstone Hope". According to Archdeacon Stuck Hope was from a "well-known house long connected with the sea".

    Point Hope residents successfully opposed Operation Chariot (1958), which would have involved buried thermonuclear detonations some 30 miles from the village to create a deep-water artificial harbor, which would only have been usable about three months out of the year...

    I.D.F- Sayeret Units (documentary)
    DEVGRU5022



    Published on Feb 26, 2014
    These three specific units are considered the most elite & prestigious of all special forces units in the IDF. The training and selection for these 3 units is the longest, most selective, most grueling, and more extensive than any other IDF units. Their operators are proficient in long range solo navigation, as opposed to other units where long range navigation is done with a minimum of 2 fighters.

    Sayeret Matkal - The IDF's principal special operations/commando unit, used mainly to obtain strategic intelligence behind enemy lines and to perform hostage-rescue missions on foreign soil. It is directly subordinate to the Israeli Military Intelligence Directorate (AMAN). Modeled after Britain's Special Air Service, it is known by Israelis as the most elite unit (above all) in the IDF.

    Shayetet 13 - The naval commando unit, equivalent to the US Navy SEALs or British Special Boat Service. Also tasked with maritime hostage-rescue missions. Part of the Israeli Navy. Founded in 1948 by former members of the Palyam, the naval branch of the Haganah.

    Sayeret Shaldag - Founded in 1974 by several former Sayeret Matkal veterans, it is the Israeli Air Force's commando unit, specializing in forward air control, aerial & special reconnaissance, and target designation outside of Israel's borders.

    WWII WEEKLY DIGEST JAPANESE FIRE BALLOONS HELICOPTERS IN CHINA ATOMIC BOMB 43694a
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jul 1, 2016
    Dating to August of 1945, this Army Air Forces newsreel is one of the very last in a series made during WWII. The film begins at :30 with footage of some of the first helicopters to ever enter a combat zone. These are R-4 choppers which were sent to China via C-47 Skytrain and assembled in the field. The Sikorsky R-4 was a two-seat helicopter designed by Igor Sikorsky with a single, three-bladed main rotor and powered by a radial engine. The R-4 was the world's first large-scale mass-produced helicopter and the first helicopter used by the United States Army Air Forces, United States Navy, and United States Coast Guard and the United Kingdom′s Royal Air Force and Royal Navy.

    On 22–23 April 1944, U.S. Army Lieutenant Carter Harman of the 1st Air Commando Group conducted the first combat rescue by helicopter using a YR-4B in the China-Burma-India theater. Despite the high altitude, humidity, and capacity for only a single passenger, Harman rescued a downed liaison aircraft pilot and his three British soldier passengers, two at a time.

    At 1:58, B-29s are seen undergoing conversion in the field into transport aircraft, which can carry 39 troops inside in bomb bays and interior pressure hull.

    At 3:19, the destruction of Nurnberg / Nuremberg is seen, after raided by Allied aircraft. The camera's unblinking eye reveals mile after mile of destroyed buildings and a virtual wasteland.

    At 5:40, a Japanese bomb-carrying balloon is seen being shot down by an American fighter aircraft. At 7:00, a balloon is seen intact as it was found on the ground. The entire assembly is seen in the following segment, including the battery that powered the unit at 7:40. A fire balloon or Fu-Go was a weapon launched by Japan during World War II. A hydrogen balloon with a load varying from a 15 kg (33 lb) antipersonnel bomb to one 12-kilogram (26 lb) incendiary bomb and four 5 kg (11 lb) incendiary devices attached, it was designed as a cheap weapon intended to make use of the jet stream over the Pacific Ocean and drop bombs on American and Canadian cities, forests, and farmland. The Japanese fire balloon was the first ever weapon possessing intercontinental range (the second being the Convair B-36 Peacemaker and the third being the R-7 ICBM). The Japanese balloon strikes on North America were at that time the longest ranged attacks ever conducted in the history of warfare, a record which was not broken until the 1982 Operation Black Buck raids during the Falkland Islands War. The balloons were ineffective as weapons but were used in one of the few attacks on North America during World War II. In February and March 1945, P-40 fighter pilots from 133 Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force operating out of RCAF Patricia Bay (Victoria, British Columbia), intercepted and destroyed two fire balloons, On February 21, Pilot Officer E. E. Maxwell While shot down a balloon, which landed on Sumas Mountain, in Washington State. On March 10, Pilot Officer J. O. Patten destroyed a balloon near Saltspring Island, British Columbia. On March 10, 1945, one of the last paper balloons descended in the vicinity of the Manhattan Project's production facility at the Hanford Site. This balloon caused a short circuit in the power lines supplying electricity for the nuclear reactor cooling pumps, but backup safety devices restored power almost immediately. Two paper balloons were recovered in a single day in Modoc National Forest, east of Mount Shasta. Near Medford, Oregon, a balloon bomb exploded in towering flames. The Navy found balloons in the ocean. Balloon envelopes and apparatūs were found in Montana and Arizona, and inside Canada in Saskatchewan, in the Northwest Territories, and in the Yukon Territory. Eventually, an Army fighter managed to push one of the balloons around in the air and force it to ground intact, where it was examined and filmed. Japanese propaganda broadcasts announced great fires and an American public in panic, declaring casualties in the thousands.

    The film ends with a segment about the Atomic Bomb at 8:00. Test footage is seen from Alamogordo and the Trinity Test site.

    OFFICE OF STRATEGIC SERVICES REPORT ON GERMAN MORALE 1944 27824
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jul 1, 2016
    Made in 1944 by the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), A REPORT ON GERMAN MORALE examines the German war machine and the methods used by the Nazis to control morale, despite huge battlefield reversals. Designed for armed forces consumption only, this is an unusually interesting film not only for the use of enemy footage throughout, but also for its attitudes. As Theodore Huff pointed out, "It rather gleefully seizes on German civilian misery as a propagandist weapon to be exploited, the very tactics that were deplored in Frank Capra's earlier "Why We Fight" series of films." At this point, any means of shortening the war must be embraced.

    The film includes a great deal of German home front footage, including preparation for air raids and repair of damage due to air raids in the opening minutes, anti-aircraft fire against Allied planes and images of downed allied planes and captured American airmen at the 3:30 mark, German gun camera footage at 4:30 and a German ace discussing his victories.

    A German newsreel "The Front Show" (Dei Deutsche Wochenschau) is seen at 7:45, with German pilots scrambling into the skies, troops demolishing Russian installations on the Eastern Front and mining railroad tracks and bridges. The real situation of course on the Russian Front was awful and is seen starting at 10:56, with Goebbels lecturing the home front and managing to keep civilian opinion in check. At 12:15, German troops are seen, and described as "good, professional soldiers" who are still fighting because they remain confident.

    At 13:23, Germany's new weapons including the Me-323 transport plane are seen, a doodle bug tank at 13:30 which is equipped with an explosive device,, and V-1 Buzz Bombs seen at 14:00. A downed V-1 is seen and examined and the V-2 mentioned.

    Hitler is seen at the 16:10 mark, from a German newsreel.

    The elite SS is discussed at 16:30, as "trained murderers" who are taught lies about their racial superiority. Heinrich Himmler is seen at 16:53.

    China's Great Leap Forward: "China Leaps Forward" 1958 Central Intelligence Agency
    Jeff Quitney



    Published on Jul 1, 2016
    China History & Travel Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...

    CIA evaluation of the Chinese society and economy at the beginning of Mao's Great Leap Forward (1958). "This film explores the industry and culture of the cities of Tianjin and Beijing."

    Public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
    The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

    The Great Leap Forward (Chinese: 大跃进; pinyin: Dà yuè jìn) of the People's Republic of China (PRC) was an economic and social campaign by the Communist Party of China (CPC) from 1958 to 1961. The campaign was led by Mao Zedong and aimed to rapidly transform the country from an agrarian economy into a socialist society through rapid industrialization and collectivization. However, it is widely considered to have caused the Great Chinese Famine.

    Chief changes in the lives of rural Chinese included the incremental introduction of mandatory agricultural collectivization. Private farming was prohibited, and those engaged in it were persecuted and labeled counter-revolutionaries. Restrictions on rural people were enforced through public struggle sessions and social pressure, although people also experienced forced labor. Rural industrialization, officially a priority of the campaign, saw "its development... aborted by the mistakes of the Great Leap Forward."

    The Great Leap ended in catastrophe, resulting in tens of millions of deaths, estimated from 18 million to 32.5 or 46 million. Historian Frank Dikötter asserts that "coercion, terror, and systematic violence were the foundation of the Great Leap Forward" and it "motivated one of the most deadly mass killings of human history".

    The years of the Great Leap Forward actually saw economic regression, with 1958 through 1962 being the only period between 1953 and 1985 in which China's economy shrank. Political economist Dwight Perkins argues, "enormous amounts of investment produced only modest increases in production or none at all. ... In short, the Great Leap was a very expensive disaster."

    In subsequent conferences in March 1960 and May 1962, the negative effects of the Great Leap Forward were studied by the CPC, and Mao was criticized in the party conferences. Moderate Party members like Liu Shaoqi and Deng Xiaoping rose to power, and Mao was marginalized within the party, leading him to initiate the Cultural Revolution in 1966.

    Pro-communist sources dispute the number of deaths in the Great Chinese Famine and deny that it was caused by the Great Leap Forward, saying the campaign was successful in its aim to accelerate state industrialisation...

    By 1958 private ownership was entirely abolished and households all over China were forced into state-operated communes. Mao insisted that the communes must produce more grain for the cities and earn foreign exchange from exports. These reforms (sometimes now referred to as The Great Leap Forward) were generally unpopular with the peasants and usually implemented by summoning them to meetings and making them stay there for days and sometimes weeks until they "voluntarily" agreed to join the collective.

    Apart from progressive taxation on each household's harvest, the state introduced a system of compulsory state purchases of grain at fixed prices to build up stockpiles for famine-relief and meet the terms of its trade agreements with the Soviet Union. Together, taxation and compulsory purchases accounted for 30% of the harvest by 1957, leaving very little surplus. Rationing was also introduced in the cities to curb 'wasteful consumption' and encourage savings...

    LUFTWAFFE FW-190 and BF-110 FIGHTER KILLS GUN CAMERA FILMS 1944 43724
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jul 2, 2016
    This silent compilation of German gun camera footage, shot in June of 1944, shows fighter aircraft including the Fw-190, Bf-110s attacking American B-24 Liberators and Boeing B-18s. At 4:50, footage is seen of a dogfight between a P-51 Mustang and an Fw-190.

    Some of the footage is quite spectacular but nothing compares to the last piece of footage, showing a Bf-110 coming in close for the kill on a B-17. Apparently the B-17 tail gunner and possibly the ball turret gunner were both incapacitated by the Bf-110's initial assault, allowing the fighter to come in close and decimate the airplane. Note that the ball turret's cannons are facing downwards and not moving in the final moments of the film.

    Gun cameras are cameras used primarily in aircraft to help measure tactical effectiveness. These cameras are triggered by the firing of a weapon, hence the name.

    The use of gun cameras first became common for gunnery training in the 1920s though examples were used during World War I by the British Royal Flying Corps. A special version of the standard Lewis Machine gun was manufactured as a Camera Gun. During World War II, gun cameras were commonly used on operational aircraft to record kills of enemy aircraft.

    The Second D-Day You've Probably Never Heard of | World War 2 Documentary
    The Best Film Archives



    Published on Jul 10, 2016

    There was a second invasion of German-occupied France that you've probably never heard of...

    This U.S. Army film is a documentary on the invasion of Southern France in 1944 by the U.S. Seventh Army and its subsequent junction with Patton's Third Army in the Northwest part of France.


    Historical background:
    The Allied invasion of Southern France (codename: Operation Dragoon) took place on 15 August 1944, during World War II. The invasion was initiated via a parachute drop by the 1st Airborne Task Force, followed by an amphibious landing by elements of the U.S. Seventh Army, followed a day later by a force made up primarily of the French First Army. The landing caused the German Army Group G to abandon southern France and to retreat under constant Allied pressure to the Vosges Mountains. Despite being a large and complex military operation with a well-managed amphibious and airborne component, Operation Dragoon is not well known as it was overshadowed by the larger Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of Normandy (D-Day) which occurred over two months earlier. Operation Dragoon also known as “the other D-Day”, “the second D-Day” or “the Forgotten D-Day”.

    The invasion of Southern France was originally planned as part of D-Day, but was pushed back due to a shortage of landing craft and slow progress of forces moving up Italy. By the time the Allied armies were ready to make their landings, some leaders were pushing to change the plan. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill wanted to use the resources and manpower dedicated to Operation Dragoon to instead push harder through Italy or to land in the Balkans. But Allied commander General Dwight D. Eisenhower was adamant that Operation Dragoon should be launched to draw away German forces marching east from Normandy. Operation Dragoon would also deliver Marseille and Toulon, large port cities that could facilitate reinforcements and supplies to the Allies for the push to Berlin
