Wherein Private Snafu learns the value of studying up on the enemy.
7 December 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

Here we find that paragon of soldierly virtue, Private Snafu, convinced that all that malarkey about "Enemy Recognition" and reading training manuals is a waste of time. He becomes Snafuperman (a parody of Superman) and discovers it isn't as simple as he thinks. Very good military training film done by the Warner Brothers animation department for the war effort. Well worth watching. Recommended.
