YANK MARKSMEN BAG JAP PLANES
(A flaming spectacle which elicits gasps from seasoned film goers)
As an American task force streams along to prosecute a raid on the Marshall Islands, Jap torpedo planes soar into view to destroy a Yank aircraft carrier. From her expansive flight deck we see some of the most spectacular action scenes of this war. Sailors fall prone to permit sprays of bullets to belch upwards at the attacking Japs. One of the celestial planes streaks in alongside our ship and he is hit with a torrent of lead. He smacks into the ocean and his foul ship explodes.
G. I. TURKEYS GOBBLED UP

THE YANKS IN KWAJELEIN
AS the American victory mounts, island by island, in the tremendous Marshall campaign, we watch the Marines in some of their high-powered handling of the revisiting Japs, at Kwajalein. The Devildogs pour lead into burning block houses, and the shrinking remnants of the garrisons come reeling out, to surrender. So many dead Japs are lying around that hurried arrangements are made to bury them. And broken to bits, lying all over the ground, are new Tojo type planes and Zeros. The American dead are interred at a military cemetery. America’s new hero, Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, Commander-in-Chief of the Pacific Fleet, rides into view in a jeep. Accompanying him are Admirals Hoover and Turner, and Generals Holland Smith and Harry Schmidt. Shortly after the Stars and Stripes are placed in position over the Atoll, the electrifying news from Truk comes in, and a fuller significance is given to this marvelous victory in the Marshalls.
While action see-saws at the Italian front, hordes of Germans are shown marching in one directionto our rear. They are prisoners of the Yanks and of the French. Nor is their stubbornness diminished by the sight of numerous German dead.

THE WAR AT ANZIO
The nature of things which are taking place in Anzio, the beachhead just below Rome, is revealed to us.
Anzio is seen to be a thriving coastal city, which serves as an excellent base for the Allies. We see Yanks prowling around looking for trouble, and they pass Nazi corpses, in many places. Then hordes of able-bodied Nazi prisoners are shown parading to concentration points. Intelligence officers interview them and size them up, then we shift to hospital scenes. Wounded Nazis are receiving expert Allied medical attention, and some of them are receiving blood plasma. Bomb explosions and find that ships in the harbor are receiving a terrible bombing. Ack ack lustily replies, and a Nazi plane plummets down, in flame and smoke.
Allied tanks come into the scenethen they rumble on, in their efforts to enlarge this beachhead.
CAPTURE OF KEIV
Russia’s armies roll on. Stalin’s dependence on artillery is dramatically demonstrated as huge batteries of guns roar into action against Kiev, the capital of the Ukraine. Russian infantry creeps into the outskirts of the metropolis, which the retreating Nazis had put to the torch, and Soviet tanks speed into the city, with the populace shrieking its welcome. Returning native women wail in anguish at the murder and the atrocities which have been committed by the enemy. But Kiev is captured.

MAC ARUTHUR’S VICTORY IN THE ADMIRALITIES
General Douglas MAcArthur, after 19 months of creeping warfare, is seen on the bridge of a plunging flagship, heading into one of the boldest moves of his South Pacific campaign. And a new type of landing operation is up for trialdependence is to be placed on surprise, rather than on pulverizing naval bombardment. Los Negros Island, in the Admiralties, is sighted, and the 5-inch guns of Uncle Sam’s destroyers bark into action. Low flying bombers carefully drop their bombs, then race away. Landing barges are chugging ashore, filed with the unmounted ranks of the U.S. 1st Cavalry.

S.S. “GRIPSHOLM” ARRIVES IN N. Y. C.
The Swedish exchange liner is first spied, as a cameraman’s delight cutting through New York harbor. The rails are crowded with Americansall overjoyed at being in home waters again. She docks and ambulances roll away with thirty-five wounded soldiers. Then the six hundred and sixty-two repatriates from German internment camps come ashore. WE see S. Pinckney Tuck, excharge d’affairs in Vichy, then Douglas C. Mac-Arthur (the General’s nephew), approaches with his canine pet. The Despecher family of Brooklyn are singled out in another crowd of returning Americans. Then Ralph Heinzen of the United Press seizes our microphone and gives an intelligent analysis of internal conditions in Germany today. Stalingrad was the turning point, he states. Germany began losing the war with that defeatand Hitleer started losing prestige.
Happy passengers, the Gripsholm brings in, and happy news.
Great BritainGeneral Eisenhowe, Air Marshall Tedder and General Montgomery view the tons of supplies which have accumulatedthen they join the troops who are engaging in mass maneuvers. Piat guns destroy tanks, new machine guns spit into action from tanks, and masses of tanks give off salvos of artillery fire. Overhead, huge formations of transport planes sail into view and hundreds of parachute troops literally fill the sky. The Generals are satisfied.
Thousands of helpless native refugees are rounded up by the Allies, placed in trucks and shipped aboard LST boats to Naples. Others stream out of Cassino and join them. AMG supplies of canned meat and beans bring smiles, especially to the blank-faced children.

U. S. TASK FORCE DESTROYS JAPS
Our cameras open on a huge task force. War ships plunge through the waves, and a liberal sprinkling of big, graceful aircraft carriers races along. Truk has just been abased by a similar task force. The goal for this force is Saipan and Tinian Islands, in the lower Mariansas (only 1,500 miles S.E. of Tokio). The Japs roar out to meet us. Hundreds of our carrier-based planes are awaiting their onsetand the killing drum fire of a staggering number of American ack ack guns starts taking its toll of the skulking Japs. They plummet into the sea like meteors. Some of them explode under water, adding fire works to their death at sea. And secondary explosions are caused as huge Jap bombs are flung upward by the sinking Jap planes. The sky is clouded with flak bursts, and streaked with tracer bullets. Box score29 Jap planes are shot out of the sky.
YANKS DAYLIGHT RAID ON BERLIN
We accompany one of the 2,000 American plane formations that are bringing ruin and panic to Berlin.
Miles of vapor-streaks are trailing after the huge Flying Fortresses, winging through the frigid sky. Crews are “on oxygen.” Then Berlin is sighted and the bombs start cascading downward. The scene below is like a field of mushrooms. Flak comes up, and one of our motors goes dead. We head back to Blighty. Some ships drop flares announcing wounded aboard, and instant medical care is waiting, when the ships roll to a stop. Colonel Mumford interviews some of the other participants in the raid. They give their crisp, spicy version of this one, and ask for return assignments.
A giant U.S. Army transport lands at a Caribean base and out stepsEleanor Roosevelton a good-will mission in this vital defense area.
New South Wales Mrs. Douglas MAcArthur very appropriately launches this defiant new Australian destroyer.

MichiganNazi prisoners of war volunteer for forest duty in the north woods. Warmly clothed, they work like beavers. Then they devour their food, and return to the recreation rooms for checkers, ping pong and music by a German band.
Brisbane In these diggings, the Diggers (colorful, exotic natives) engage the Yanks in a rodea. You grabs a brone, and you’re spilled, you grabs a cow, and you’re spilled, you grabs a bull, and you’re ingloriously unseated. And it all happens down under.
RUBBER FROM THE SEA
Fortaleza, BrazilNative fishermen ask no questions as they haul in bales of valuable rubber wafted to their shores by sea currents in which Nazi blockade runners had been sunk.

WAR OF EUROPE
This is a pictorial explanation of the recurring phrase“American medium bombers were out in strength today, bombing objectives on the invasion coast.” Marauders of the U.S. 9th Air Force, based in England, are shown taking off. Over the continent, they literally fly through paths of flak, which are bursting “plane high.” Flak helmets are adjusted . . . and airports in Holland are sighted. Tons and tons of bombs are spilled on these Nazi aerodromes, with marvelous effect. We race home and watch a belly landing of a damaged ship which is piloted by a 19-year-old youngster. This raid definitely cuts down Nazi bombing power, and life in London becomes more tenable.
WAR IN THE ANZIO BEACHHEAD
Every single minute of every day and night which is lived in the Anzio beachhead, is lived within range of Nazi artillery. Despite this pall, the Fifth Army carries on valiantly. We show the day-to-day activities of the many army units that are in there. Air Forces, Coast Artillery, Signal Corps, Engineers, Ordnance, Infantry and others. It is a stark picture of rugged manhood performing assignments under terrible war conditions.
WAR IN BURMA
Exemplifying the highest type of American military leadership, Lt. General Stilwell sends his Chinese army on the march. “Vinegar Joe’s” army gets supplies by parachute, while the Japs are relying on rafts and elephants. Lt.

ADVANCING IN THE ADMIRALTIES
General Mac ARuthur stated to his troops in the Admiralties“it is imperative that we hold this position against any attack.” We watch LST boats, bristling with Yanks, scrape to a stop at water’s edge, in Los Negros. Supporting their advance, naval guns blast into action, and damaging hits are recorded.
Our infantry advances and we see scattered Jap corpses. Manos airfield is reached, and the action livens. Our wounded are hastily brought out as the Medical Corps springs to their aid. Transfusions are given and the surgeons operate in field tents. Jap reinforcements from nearby islands enter the battle, then we stumble unto one of the starkest scenes of this war. Piles of Jap corpses, in grotesque positions are discovered. A high percentage of them are victims of the fanatical Jap self-destruction riteHara Kiri. Yank hand grenades and machine guns exterminate the remaining Japs. Los Negros, Mamote airfield and the valuable Manos airstrip are taken, and General MacArthur’s orders are carried out.
PARAPAKING IN BURMA

U. S. VICTORY AT TRUK
The U.S. Navy makes history as a huge task force assembles to attack the highly publicized “impregnable fortress of Truk.” Planes zoom from expansive carrier docks, and before long, Truk is observed, stretched out below like a diagram on a drafting table. Cocky Jap interceptors bear in for the attackand they are blown out of the skies, by uncanny machine gun fire, and clouds of rising anti-aircraft fire. Then our planes dive on acres of grounded Jap planes and riddle them to Kingdom Come. They dive on oil tanks and spew lead streams into them, until they burst into flames. In the harbor, freighters are split in two and destroyers are destroyed, as the craft are zealously strafed and bombed. Back on a carrier, we watch two damaged U.S. Navy planes landone comes in on one wheel, and from the other, a seriously wounded pilot is carried away. Over 200 Jap planes are destroyed, forty vessels are sunk or badly damaged, and Truk is proved vulnerable to superior American equipment and men. What a “sweet day” for the U. S. Navy.

MOUNTBATTEN’S FORCES IN BURMA
Lord Louis Mountbatten, Commander-in-Chief of the Southeast Asia Armies, sends his forces down Burma’s western shores in a master plan to regain Burma from the Japs. We get a bird’s eye view of the difficult terrain, then we watch the Tommies slither through the jungle brush, as their tanks blaze forth with supporting fire. Formations of Allied bombers spew their bomb loads on the resisting Japs and British artillery and machine guns finish the “clearing out” job. The infantry cautiously advances to carefully examine the prizes of their victory. Heaps of Jap guns and helmets and other war materiel are taken, together with Nipponese battle flags and communications. Shrinking Jap prisoners are hauled out of fox holes, and the seriously wounded are littered to the rear for treatment. All of which forms an interesting insight into the difficult task which confronts the Allies in reconquering Burma, a land infested with Fifth Columnists and spies.
EISENHOWER AT SANDHURST
