Pete Smith short shows us how the Marines are now being trained for battle and new technology in WW2. The film only runs around 8-minutes but it's entertaining throughout especially the section talking about how the Marines looked at how colleges were training their football players.
These Pete Smith shorts are constantly showing on Turner Classic Movies so if you're interested then keep your eyes open.
Nominated for an Oscar.
