Two WW2 shorts, 29 February 2008
Author: Michael_Elliott from Louisville, KY

Combat America (1944) ** (out of 4) Clark Gable narrates this documentary that focuses on the men fighting in the war. Outside the stock footage there really isn't anything too interesting here. War Comes to America (1945) *** (out of 4) Highly entertaining documentary from Frank Capra, which was part of seven docs he did for WW2. This one here tracks the final events, which led America to join the war. With all the stock footage from back in the day, this here really is a must see. It's also interesting to see poll numbers throughout the late 30s to the early 40s on how Americans felt about entering a war.
