Attack in the Pacific (film #2 on disc #1 of Pearl Harbor: Before and After DVD (Triton, 2001)). [Category: Military & Propaganda]

This film documents the war in the Pacific, particularly the long slow journey of the Navy from island to island, and how they provided support for the soldiers fighting to take each island from the Japanese. This is informative and historically interesting, but it’s pretty straightforward with no surprises. Some of the battle footage is pretty gritty. Fans of battle footage will like this; others, probably less so.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: *. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
