Click to EnlargeBATTLE OF MIDWAY + GLOBAL WAR. DVD video. 2 films. Introduced by Brigadier General Ulanoff, a decorated military historian.

THE BATTLE OF MIDWAY is The celebrated director John Ford (Commander John Ford, USNR) presents the battle as it happened with little, if any, post production elements added other than narration. Actual combat scenes are captured on film from every possible vantage point, with Ford and his cameramen risking their lives, literally, in the battle zone. (Ford was in fact wounded while filming.) Enemy and friendly planes alike are shot down in this film, in which the loss of American lives is not sugarcoated or censored but grimly presented as a harsh reality of war.

GLOBAL WAR. In an obective, unsentimental manner, this film documents the U.S. Army''s wartime efforts in 1943, from Patton's army marching through Sicily to the collapse of Mussolini in Italy, and the events unfolding in the Pacific theater.
