Produced in 1945 after WWII had ended, this Victory Bond film explores the cost of the war in physical terms -- specifically the veterans who have returned from the war with dreadful wounds, amputations, blindness, etc. The film encourages Americans to buy Bonds to provide continued care for these servicemen.
Footage includes V-E Day in New York, busy shots of Americans getting back to normal life after the war, miscellaneous battle shots and many views of men receiving medical treatment in military hospitals. These include amputees, men in wheelchairs, and every variety of injury.
