America Goes to War in the Pacific (film #4 on Side A of Disc #1 in the War in the Pacific section of Combat Classics DVD Megapack (Mill Creek Entertainment, 2006)). [Category: Military & Propaganda]

This documentary covers the Japanese takeovers in the Far East following Pearl Harbor and America’s preparations for war in the Pacific. There’s some really interesting footage of military training here, as well as footage from Japanese films about their military victories early in the war. The rest is pretty ordinary, but this has lots of historical value, as do most of the films in this series.

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