WW2 Capra
26 February 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Divide and Conquer (1943)

*** (out of 4)

Frank Capra directed this propaganda film about how Germany struck against the French and brought the country down to nothing more than slaves of Hitler. Out of the three "Why We Fight" films from Capra I'd say I enjoyed this one the most. The generic animated sequences showing Hitler's battle plans might not look the greatest but the information they show makes it easy to see why Germany was such a strong force. Walter Huston narrates.

All of the Capra WW2 films are worth watching as are the John Ford directed ones.
