3rd Infantry Division History on Film

Our Series II DVD, "Liberation of Western Europe", begins here and continues through to late October 1944, as men of the 3rd Div. receive awards while pushing towards St. Die, France. The contents of this video show the action as was recorded by the 163rd Signal Photo Companies, during this historic operation. The military history footage in this video is intended to be strictly that of the 3rd Infantry Division and only shows other unit footage when two or more units are intertwined. Combat Reels has researched and compiled all of this raw combat film footage, then reformatted it into the DVD format for your viewing pleasure.
