America Goes to War (film #3 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 covers the preparations for war the United States made in the months following Pearl Harbor. There’s lots of detail here, and lots of interesting archival footage, including German footage of scenes inside a U-boat. It gets a little dry in spots, but this has lots of historical interest.

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