ACTION AT ANGUAR (1945, BLACK AND WHITE, 11:14)
The U.S. War Department, as part of the the 7th War Loan Drive produced this film to document the baptism of fire of the green 81st Infantry "Wildcat" Division in the Battle of Anguar in the Palau Islands.

GIANT KILLERS (1944, COLOR, 29:53)
EarthStation1.com is proud that the subject of this film is Elco, a concern who made their home in our hometown of Bayonne, New Jersey, who made nearly 400 PT Boats during World War II. Bayonne still proudly displays the crane used to launch all these boats in a park adjacent to Route 440 on the Jersey City border, though the 21 buildings that made up the Newark Bay Elco facility have since been redeveloped as condominiums. Their boats were the largest PT boats manufactured and they served all over the world, one under the command of a young Navy lieutenant named John F. Kennedy, future president of the United States. Their construction was a model for others to aspire to, as was their plant and their labor force. This films sails us through the manufacture of these fine machines, proudly shows off its plant and gratefully celebrates its workers.

INSIDE FIGHTING CHINA (1942, 18:54)
Even now, some 3 generations later, many history books continue to wrongly insist that it was the long-suffering Soviet Union who suffered the most amount of casualties during World War II. The fact is, China suffered far, far more in casualties, and fought for a far, far longer period of time on at least the same savage scale. This film intended to tell these facts as they had so far developed to a 1942 audience in order to get them to understand China's importance and contribution to the overall war effort.

LIFE LINE (1943, 16:55)
Extraordinary film footage of the bloody amphibious invasion and seizure of Rendova Island in the Solomon chain from the Japanese, paving the way for the long range aerial bombardment of Japan by American B-29 bombers.

TARGET: JAPAN (1944, 13:24)
A March Of Time Production illustrating the extraordinarily leaps on military strength that the United States made from when it was laid so low after the Pearl Harbor attack to overpowering stamina and strength displayed in the Marshall Islands. Created with the intention of bracing an American audience to the hard, long-term task of advancing on the Imperial Japanese homeland.

TWO DOWN, ONE TO GO! (1945, 5:30)
A call to continue battle after the fall of America's two other World War II enemies, Italy and Germany, in order to prosecture the war against Japan to the end.

THE 957TH DAY (1944, 9:50)
Documents the first day of the Pacific 5th Fleet's bold Battle of the Marianas and the amphibious invasion of Guam in July of 1944.

THE FLEET THAT CAME TO STAY (1946, 19:23)
A landmark film produced immediately after the end of hostilities detailing the herculean effort that went into the American naval campaign against the Japanese in the Pacific theater. Contains awesome combat footage with especial attention on the horrific kamikaze attacks of the Battle of Okinawa and elsewhere. Produced by the Treasury Department in order to sell bonds to finance the enormous job left for the Navy to do.

WE SAID WE'D COME BACK (1944, 13:02)
The taking back of Guam from the Japanese was a significant event in America's summer of '44, and just as THE 957TH DAY documented the first day of that endeavor, this film celebrates the fruits of all the labor that went into the effort

WHAT MAKES A BATTLE? (1944, 15:34)
An excellent exposition of the Battle of the Marshall Islands, extensively supplementing strategic analysis with plentiful use animations and battle footage.


The Pacific War, sometimes called the Asia-Pacific War, was the theater of World War II that was fought in Asia, the Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocean, and Oceania. It was geographically the largest theater of the war, including the vast Pacific Ocean theater, the South West Pacific theater, the South-East Asian theater, the Second Sino-Japanese War, and the Soviet-Japanese War. The Second Sino-Japanese War between the Empire of Japan and the Republic of China had been in progress since 7 July 1937, with hostilities dating back as far as 19 September 1931 with the Japanese invasion of Manchuria. However, it is more widely accepted that the Pacific War itself began on 7 December (8 December Japanese time) 1941, when the Japanese invaded Thailand and attacked the British colonies of Malaya, Singapore, and Hong Kong as well as the United States military and naval bases in Hawaii, Wake Island, Guam, and the Philippines. The Pacific War saw the Allies pitted against Japan, the latter aided by Thailand and to a lesser extent by the Axis allies, Germany and Italy. Fighting consisted of some of the largest naval battles in history, and incredibly fierce battles and war crimes across Asia and the Pacific Islands, resulting in immense loss of human life. The war culminated in massive Allied air raids over Japan, and the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, accompanied by the Soviet Union's declaration of war and invasion of Manchuria and other territories on 9 August 1945, causing the Japanese to announce an intent to surrender on 15 August 1945. The formal surrender of Japan ceremony took place aboard the battleship USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay on 2 September 1945. After the war, Japan lost all rights and titles to its former possessions in Asia and the Pacific, and its sovereignty was limited to the four main home islands and other minor islands as determined by the Allies. Japan's Shinto Emperor relinquished much of his authority and his divine status through the Shinto Directive in order to pave the way for extensive cultural and political reforms.
