Jayne Loader regrets "not being able to use more of the U.S. Army training films, which were made to prepare the troops for nuclear war, like 'Manual Damage Assessment' and 'The Management of Mass Casualties' which dealt with triage after a nuclear war. And 'Memorial Activities' - which pertained to burying radioactive bodies". See more »

The fact that this is true makes this short film scary and worrying...but doesn't stop it from being very entertaining and funny. The pieces of real life propaganda are amazing and it's often hard to believe that it's all true.
However remember that all of the snipets of film are cut and pasted together with music added over the top, so everything you see isn't exactly as it seems... it's propaganda on propaganda...and highly entertaining. A must see for any one interested in American History, Propaganda, or just wanting a good sorry laugh.
