This is the first DVD collection ever released that brings together the World War II films of John Ford and Frank Capra. John Ford filmed the war in the Pacific, while Frank Capra filmed the war in Europe, and together these two gentlemen played an integral role in helping Americans understand why it was important for the United States, and its citizens, to take part in World War II on the side of the Allies against the Axis powers.

U.S. President Roosevelt believed Hollywood could be helpful in influencing Americans why we must fight. Two directors were chosen, John Ford (four Academy Awards), and Frank Capra (three Academy Awards). Ford joined the Navy and concentrated on the Pacific War, and was eventually wounded in at Midway Island in 1942. Capra, recruited by the U.S. Army, combined Germany's propaganda footage with front-line action to show Americans "Why We Must Fight!" Overall, this collection captures the very essence of the World War II conflict, and why it was extremely important that the United States join the Allied forces, whose ultimate goal was to stop the Axis powers from achieving their frightful vision of world domination.

Bonus Features: 84 Hearts Newsreels shown at local theaters during the 1940s.
