Frank Capra's classic documentary series!
A series of seven documentaries produced by the War Department exclusively for the armed forces. The office of War Information later released them to the American public. Many scenes were obtained from actual battle footage, captured enemy films, official United Nations films and American newsreels. All maps, diagrams, and a few historical reenactments were authenticated and prepared by the War Department. These films depict the events leading up to our entry into the war and the principles for which we fought.
"WHY WE FIGHT, Volume 6 - Battle of China" - Japan's master plan to conquer the world was divided into four phases. The first was to invade and annex Manchuria because it was rich in raw materials. The second was to defeat China and use her great manpower as a vehicle for phase three, which was to sweep south into Indochina and finally phase four which was to conquer the United States.
China was actually made of many provinces, each with its own leader and army. This lack of unity explains how Japan, a highly regimented military dictatirship, could be victorious when they only had one-sixth the population and were only one-twentieth the size of China. China, in its 4,000 year history, had never waged a war of conquest. Facing deeat, the Chinese people united together as a nation to counter the menacing threat from the East.
