Are you tired of seeing the same old wwii movies? Do you feel that every documentary you see concerning the battle for Europe is just a rehashed version of the several you have seen before? If you are looking for a new way to view the historic operations of this incredible conflict, then you have found the right place. At Combat Reels we are dedicated to bringing ALL of the identifiable footage that was captured by the U.S. Army Signal Corps to the general public.
You will never watch a war movie or film footage the same way again. Most film footage you see on television or in the movies, especially the combat footage, was all silent film; the sound you may hear, the guns shooting, the tanks firing, was added later in a photo lab or movie studio. On a Combat Reels movie, you will see it in its original form; you may hear some live sounds for interviews, award ceremonies, briefings; but typically not combat itself. Additionally, a lot of this lost footage is in black and white. Color was just starting to come into existence and was not widely used. Most footage shot by Army photographers in England and the central european continent was shot in black and white, color beginning to gain acceptance in 1945. However, footage shot by the Navy and Coast Guard featured a lot of color, this includes a fair amount in North Africa 1942-1943. In the Pacific there is a lot of color Marine footage.
Get ready to see wwii soldiers, helmets and cloting in closeups, on the battlefield, at aid stations, eating meals and just relaxing when there was a pause in the action in their sector. Watch solders as they carry and fire their weapons including M1 Garand, Carbine rifles, 1911 Colt 45 pistol. You will see all types of world war 2 infantry weapons including grenades, mortars, flamethrowers, howitzers, Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR), machine guns, bazookas and other anti-tank weapons. And speaking of tanks, watch the Army's M4 Sherman tank from ww2 in action. There were also M10, M18 Hellcat and M38 tank destroyers and half-tracks. Vehicles of all types were prevalent in the war zone including Willy's, Willis Jeeps and the workhorse deuce and a half a two and one-half ton truck used to transport men and materiel. If you like war history, a particular division or have a specific interest in vehicles or guns of World War 2 then you have to try one of our movie DVDs; we are sure you will come back for more!
