How We Fight
5 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

This Signal Corps short subject concerns an Army Air Force bomber sent out to deal with a submarine during the darkest days of the Second World War. It is narrated by Walter Huston and was nominated for an Academy Award. Unfortunately, it is no more than adequate.

Huston brings as much excitement as he can to a dry recitation of the facts, but the bureaucratic sequence of information and orders that begins the film is disheartening. Doubtless it was intended to show how well organized the Air Corp was. To me it simply indicates that if there had been a major invasion, the Axis would have been in Omaha before anyone got through polishing his brass.
