Africa: Our First Offensive (film #5 on Side A of Disc #1 of the War in Europe section of Combat Classics DVD Megapack (Mill Creek Entertainment, 2006)). [Category: Military & Propaganda]

This documentary about the first US invasion during World War II may have been recently produced, though it’s kind of hard to tell. It does contain lots of great archival footage of the invasion of North Africa, as well as production and transport of war materials on the home front. The story is rather starkly told, without background music, but it goes into quite a bit of detail, giving this historical interest.

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