Private Snafu has a secret: his ship leaves for Africa at 4:30. He's determined to keep it, but bit by bit it slips out, and eventually, the details end up right on Hitler's desk and the ship is engaged.
Another entry in the Private Snafu series made for use by the US Army during World War II. This one's directed by Chuck Jones and is a bit different from most of the others. This one isn't really an instructional short so much as straightforward entertainment with Snafu and a Japanese soldier stranded on a Pacific island together. The two try to kill each other and one eventually succeeds. That's pretty much it. It immediately brought to my mind Hell in the Pacific, a movie from 1968 starring Lee Marvin and Toshiro Mifune that had a similar plot. Fine voice work from Mel Blanc and great use of music in this one make it better than average for the series.
