    Thank god for the bomb. My grandfather was about to move up from the B-24 Liberator's to the B-29's.

  2. Nelson De La Cruz says:

    The b29 crashing into the water, could that wreck still be there?

  3. Phillip Burns says:

    Best video I have seen๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

  4. John Ferguson says:

    The two largest US defense programs of the war were the Manhattan Project to build the atom bombs and the B-29 bomber program.

  5. Dale Baranoski says:

    Did the anti aircraft shooting ever strike other ships?

  6. Jiyu Shugi says:

    Those interested in reading a Japanese pilot's account of the attack on Pearl Harbor should read 'The Miraculous Torpedo Squadron' by Juzo Mori on Amazon Kindle. Only recently translated into English, Mori's autobiography gives a vivid account of life in pre-war Japan, training to become pilot, flying in China, training for and carrying out the attack on Pearl Harbor, his role in the attacks on Wake, Midway and Guadalcanal, and more. A must read for students of the Pacific war.

  7. Javaking CaliMan says:

    USA committed the biggest WAR CRIME ever by indiscriminately bombing cities ( Nuclear) and killing hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians

  8. Donald Allison says:

    The footage of the Japanese parachutist seemed very peaceful until I realised it was a gun camera.

  9. Dirty Steve 0331 says:

    Anyone else notice the Japanese pilots chute ripping off as he bailed? What a ride. RIP

  10. Gail Raby says:

    interesting video, the added camera sound track is annoying, could do without that, your time would have been better spent adding some period music, that constant rattle you added was a waste of your time.

  12. A lot of the strafing footage at the end is from the european theatre

  13. david wilson says:

    Adding the fake projector sound = thumbs down for idiots.

  14. DJ KaNeck says:

    That projector is real!

  15. Jack Belk says:

    The P-51s with wing tanks just BARELY could stagger into the air.

  16. Thelastminstrel says:

    Knew a guy who was a crew chief on B-29s.
    He said they had to change the spark plugs after every mission – that's four engines with 21 cylinders and two plugs per cylinder – 42 plugs per engine – four engines = 168 spark plugs per aircraft.
    Just one of the maintenance requirements for just one aircraft.
    Think of hundreds on each mission, the sheer effort staggers me. Not counting what it took to design, build, test, perfect, supply all the people, parts, fuel, ordinance.

  17. Wheres the military value in shooting up those fishing boats?

  18. ํ™์„์ฃผ says:

    Nazi & joppari traitor very well luxury living in korea

  19. Brian Atherton says:

    They where some real men and im proud of every one of them

  20. Titus Cato says:

    It pisses me off so much, that people watching men fight & die for real.
    But can only complain about about the camera reel sound.
    Just fuck off, if that's all you got out of this video.

  21. Captain Richard Sensi-ble says:

    I'm a WW2 Truther. One big conspiracy by both sides.

  22. Captain Richard Sensi-ble says:

    Well done with the sound!

  23. Yeah, the projector sound was a really bad idea, although it was probably easier to do than actually having to think about doing a real sound track.

  24. pippo spano says:

    the quality is strikingly good. many thanks

  25. Wesley Hayley says:

    and how do you define "gun camera"?

  26. Malcolm Allerton says:

    Truely if you donโ€™t control the air you have lost the war

  27. Paulo Ramalho says:

    A guerra รฉ a expressรฃo elevada dos povos de alta cultura.

  28. Ju-87 Stuka says:

    Gotta admit, as an American, I greatly admire a Japanese pilot with 20 kills in an Oscar as you see at 0:05, with just two machine guns in the engine cowling they werenโ€™t the hardest hitters and had to be precise with their shots.

  29. christ on crutches….why do you guys think you need to add annoying background noise?

  30. Dogsoldier 1950 says:

    Here is the lesson. Screw with the USA pay big time

  31. LIBERTY MAN says:


  32. whosiskid says:

    Awesome footage. Thank yo so much for this. I don't think I've seen any of this before. Incredible stuff. Like the long shot of the Betty bomber getting raked by machine gun fire. And a lot of the strafing shots are great

  33. Colin Beresford says:

    The P51s look magnificent

  34. Colin Beresford says:

    Brave warriors on both sides made to fight a war created by sick politicians

  35. baker2niner says:

    Dad's squadron shown at the beginning – big "A" on the tail. I wonder where he is when this was filming.

  36. william hogan says:

    always the same footage…

  37. You could get rid of that annoying projector sound.

  38. yaris7422 says:
