Shot by a member of combat camera named Edwin C. Udey who was tasked with making a documentary about the field treatment of wounded, this silent footage was taken during the Battle of Saipan in 1944. Unlike most of the censored footage you will see from WWII, this material of wounded soldiers being evacuated from the combat zone is quite raw. It is hard to watch without becoming emotional, seeing so many brave, young men who have been subjected to the horrors of battle. It is also impressive to...

Dating to the 1930s, this 16mm silent film is ostensibly a study of the geography of the British Isles from the Naze to Falmborough Head. Interestingly, when this film was recovered by collector Clint Daniel (who runs the website danielsww2.com) this film was in a Luftwaffe marked canister. We can assume based on this that the film was actively being shown to Luftwaffe crews during the war, and that makes sense since a film like this one would have greatly added to their navigational prowess....
