World War II in the Pacific, 20 January 2004
Author: garundaboink from Nova Scotia, Canada

Documentary of the old style, something that would be considered propaganda today. Very often the story is dictacted by the available film clips rather than the other way around. This documentary series is told with a blustery, booming voice. The intro theme music is almost propaganda itself. Sometimes the facts do surface and are interesting but it can be difficult to wait for them. The enemy is always "sneaky and cunning" the Americans "brave and stalwart". Sometimes the narrative wanders off the topic simply becuase of available film footage. This is not the standard that we expect today but it is interesting none the less.
