*“Last Bomb” Outtakes: B-29s & P-51s & more (Exclusive- Restored Color + SFX) NEW Recently discovered silent reel of outtakes, expanded scenes, and new footage from the Academy Award winning World War 2 B-29 classic, "The Last Bomb." Includes never before seen footage showing a B-29 engine repair facility on Saipan, expanded scenes showing General Curtis Le May and XX Bomber Command planning a mission to Tokyo, inside the cockpit photos from an actual B-29 mission and more. I've added real sound effects taken from B-29s,P-51s and 50 cal. machine guns. And there's a big bonus for fighter fans. The section of the original film that shows P-51 Mustang squadrons ranging over the Japanese mainland after targets of opportunity is expanded , yielding some of the most exciting color gun camera footage we have seen from World War 2.
*The General George S Patton Story - Narrated by Ronald Reagan. NEW Restored Get the full story of George Patton, from his graduation from West Point through his untimely death right after World War 2. Patton was a key figure in developing the principles of armored warfare. A brilliant tactician and a controversial leader he led American forces to victory in campaigns in North Africa, Sicily, across France, in the Battle of the Bulge and then deep into Germany .
* The 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment in Vietnam (Restored Color) NEW -- digitally restored The Black Horse Regiment” was a uniquely independent unit, functioning as an armored fist, re-enforcing other units in battle and in a wide variety of other roles including convoy escort through enemy infested territory and jungle clearing. East of Saigon in III Corps, they were responsible for numerous firsts that you'll see used in combat, including developing armored vehicles for local conditions like the ACAV Armored Cavalry Assault Vehicle, a an essential upgrade of the M133 APC with much better armor, additional weaponry & steel shields to protect gunners. The 11th were also the first to operate the Army's innovative new M551 Sheridan AR/AAV light tank.
*354th Fighter Group P-51 "Mustang Pioneers" (Exclusive Documentary - Restored Color)
This is an updated revision of a documentary I created 6 years ago with added sound effects and exclusive footage of Lt. B W Carr climbing out of a captured German FW 190 fighter . I digitally restored the color, added graphics and music etc. Rare color film of the legendary 354 Fighter Group, with over 700 Kills, the highest scoring American unit in Europe. You'll see great aces like G.T. Eagleston and B.W. Carr at work and at play in their newly captured base in Germany in Spring, 1945, only a few months before war's end. Amazing color gun camera film!
*The Bulge: The Battle at St Vith This remarkable documentary combines eyewitness testimony from an all star cast of key participants on both sides of a critical engagement in the Battle of the Bulge with outstanding archival footage, detailed maps, and a return to revisit the actual terrain where each phase of battle was fought.
* School for Danger: SOE & French Resistance Fight the German Occupation - Restored 1945 This is one the most exciting World War 2 espionage films you'll see. What's unique is that the characters play themselves performing the roles they executed during World War 2 -- from British secret agents to French Resistance fighters to special mission RAF pilots and operational commanders.
