  1. I certainly didn’t know this

    • I realize it was a lot of film and didn’t really expect everyone to to be able to view it all. But even skimming by fast-forwarding gives the viewer an idea, right? Being as this part of the war came and went in history as barely a foot-note, I wanted the information here in the site. Thank you for your time, Derrick.

  2. It amazes me that so many photos and actual films are available from WWII. Glad that someone kept this priceless information.

    • The more I researched the cameramen and Signal Corps, the more I knew that bits and pieces of many battles had to be out there. I’m certain new pictures will always continue to emerge from long lost attics, government archives and museum basements long after we’re gone.

  5. O seara plăcută!


    Vorbele bune nu costă mult. Nu afectează nici limba nici buzele. Îi fac pe ceilalţi să fie mai buni. De asemenea ele produc imaginea asupra sufletelor oamenilor şi această imagine este cu adevarat frumoasă. – Blaise Pascal
    Kind words do not cost much. It does not affect the tongue or lips. They make others to be better. They also produce the image on the souls of men, and this picture is really beautiful. – Blaise Pascal


    În viaţă, este mai bine să nu amestecăm afacerile cu prietenia, pentru că atunci când la mijloc sunt interese materiale se uită valorile prieteniei.
    In life, it is better not to mix business with friendship, because when the middle are material interests looks values friendship.

  7. Great post Brad. I love the “alternative energy” navy ship. I immediately recalled the first two weeks of “shock and awe”. Too funny !

  8. I’ll have to save these for later but the first cartoon made me stop and think about the number of special occasions our soldiers miss while on duty. I’ll try to remember to be thankful for that.

  9. Hmm, by 2020 the energy must be so scarce. I have everyone else are forced to do the same otherwise it would take long to take the ship down 🙂

  11. The films give some idea of the numbers (and difficulties) involved in this campaign. It was nice to see and hear the recollections of the Liberator pilot too.
    Best wishes, Pete.
