    Nice to watch one without being interrupted every two minutes with three minutes of commercials each.

  11. Dj Phantom says:

    Another excellent newsreel saved for posterity, thanks P.F, however I think the commentary was less than thrilling, I donโ€™t have any idea why they would use words that would intimate war could be anything other than terrifying. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ

  18. Flowcaine says:

    That video of the US Supposedly destroying Luftwaffe airfield and planes isnโ€™t true , that video is originally from Nazi planes destroying Stalins airfield . Look it up

  19. Sounds like the narrator was describing an amusement park.

  20. Stephen Arling says:

    My dad was in WWII, serving on a Gleaves-class destroyer. In the Atlantic, his was among several ships during Operation Monstrous, a three-day hunt for a u-boat that was eventually forced to surface. Its crew scuttled the sub, and were all rescued. In the Pacific, his destroyer was among those forming a radar picket at the battle of Okinawa.

  21. Daniel Burgess says:

    It's only a 'thrill' when your own ass isn't on the chopping block.

  22. Exit Only says:

    On one hand, I admire the bravely of our soldiers going up agasint the enemy to protect our country. But on the other, this film short bothers me at with hard sell to get the public clapping at the death of people in war. It's a grim dirty business, and while necessary, it shouldn't be treated like a damn ball game.

  23. WileyIsWeird says:

    Is anybody gonna comment aabout that last frame? ILet me explain.. at the end of the reel it says "The End", and then, for just one frame, somone, probably with a sharpie, added in "of the war". I have no clue why this is so creepy and chilling to me, it just is.

  24. Jeremy Bear says:

    Love these guys! Forever in my memory!

  25. Christopher Brandon says:

    c.l.b. my album mixtape central america 2018

  28. Try to imagine flying through that wall of tracers ๐Ÿ˜ฐ

  29. ILikeTurtles says:

    I always wonder how it would of looked and sounded seeing all the dog fighting and thousands of bullets flying through the air, It must of been complete chaos but at the same time aw inspiring..

  30. Gordon Bradley says:

    If there are any more thrills like those going around, you can have my share !

  31. I got some real thrills from watching this.

  32. Ju-87 Stuka says:

    I fucking love this country.

  33. E.A. Hawley says:

    Too bad, U.S. soldiers got their asses kicked on Viet Nam and couldn't win like they did here.

  34. E.A. Hawley says:

    Such brave men and women that defended the imperialist USA from imperialist Japan.

  35. Dont Do It says:

    Health and safety gone mad. You couldn't duck under a accelerating gliders wing anymore. Boo
    Seriously though, thank you for the time and effort spent on this project. The importance of saving this kind of footage for future generations cannot be over stated.

  36. Xmanhoe Bill says:

    @ 6.56 why does it show a German Stuka ? ๐Ÿ˜‚

  37. Antiochus III the Great says:

    Everyone on here commenting "how dare they call this horrible war thrills, it's just death and destruction." I don't think you understand the point of a propaganda film. It was to show the public that the war was going well and that they were winning.
