This short and apparently hastily assembled newsreel shows the events of December 7th, 1941 and expresses deep outrage at the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.  Due to classification issues at the time the film was made, very little of the damage to Pearl Harbor itself is shown; rather the film focuses on damage to civilian areas of Waikiki and Honolulu.

This German propaganda movie was part of a U.S. Navy archive compiled during WWII, and acquired by Periscope Film. In this film, the Battle of The Atlantic is seen from the German perspective as Kreigsmarine U-boats converge for a wolfpack patrol, hunting Allied merchant ships.

This short newsreel, produced for the home market, shows the first offensive action of the Pacific War by the U.S. Navy: a raid on Makin Island in the Marshalls conducted by the USS Yorktown battle group under command of Admiral William Halsey.

This short newsreel, produced for the home market, shows the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown (CV-5) under attack by Japanese Zeros during the Battle of the Coral Sea. Although the carrier was badly damaged in the battle, it lived to sail another day and proved crucial to the U.S. victory at Midway a few months later.
