Blunt, straight-forward and free from the usual propaganda
28 January 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This short film debuted just after WWII ended. I doubt if it could have been done the same way had it come out before the last bomb was dropped on Japan. That's because the film is very straight-forward--without a lot of the typical propaganda language of films from 1942-1945. The enemy was neither demonized nor humanized in this film...it simply chronicles the bombing campaign in the Pacific against the Japanese. While this will no doubt come off as dry, it is very important historically--giving us a nice glimpse into the past.

By the way, I noticed another reviewer was critical that the film did not show the victims of the bomb blasts. Well, considering how bloody the war was, there certainly was no desire by the average American to see this--they just know they'd been attacked and their children were forced to go off and fight in a war. It's pretty easy today to be critical of the past--but in context, what else was there to do?! Good history should neither be filled with propaganda nor colored to satisfy modern sensibilities.
