The Air War (film #6 on Side A of Disc #2 of the War in Europe section of Combat Classics DVD Megapack (Mill Creek Entertainment, 2006)). [Category: Military & Propaganda]

This documentary chronicles the air war in Europe, especially the US involvement in it. There’s lots of great archival footage here of air battles and briefing sessions of air corps units. The narration is somewhat disjointed, but the visuals here tell the real story, and it’s a compelling one.

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