Returning Soldiers: It's Your America 1945 US Army Training Film; World War II

more at http://quickfound.net/links/military_news_and_links.html 'The U.S. War Department described this film in the following words: "An American soldier, during his combat career, realizes the greatness of his country and determines to assume his share of the responsibilities of good citizenship upon his return to civilian life." Contains "seized enemy material."' Starring Arthur Kennedy. Public domain film from the the Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demobilization_of_United_States_armed_forces_after_World_War_II The Demobilization of United States armed forces after the Second World War began with the defeat of Germany in May 1945 and continued through 1946. The United States had more than 12 million men and women in the armed forces at the end of World War II of whom 7.6 million were stationed abroad. The American public demanded a rapid demobilization and soldiers protested the slowness of the process. Military personnel were returned to the United States in Operation Magic Carpet. By June 30, 1947, the number of active duty soldiers, sailors, Marines, and airmen in the armed forces had been reduced to 1,566,000... Planning As early as mid-1943, the United States Army had recognized that, once victory was won, bringing the troops home would be a priority. More than 16 million Americans were in uniform; and more than eight million of them were scattered across 55 theaters of war worldwide. Army Chief of Staff General George Marshall established committees to address the logistical problem. Eventually organization of the operation was given to the War Shipping Administration (WSA). It established and coordinated Operation Magic Carpet. Germany surrenders On May 10, 1945, two days after the unconditional surrender of Germany to the allies on V-E Day, the War Department announced a point system for the demobilization and discharge of Army and Army Air Force enlisted personnel. The point system, called the Advanced Service Rating Score, had the objective of achieving equity in the demobilization. Soldiers were given one point for each month of military service and one additional point was given for each month of overseas service. Each battle star or decoration earned a soldier 5 points. Soldiers were awarded 12 points per dependent child up to a maximum of three children. A total of 85 points was needed for eligibility... Women in the Women's Army Corps (WACs) were eligible for demobilization with 44 points. The War Department initially projected demobilizing 2 million soldiers in the 12 months following the victory in Europe: 50 percent of this total were in Europe, 33 percent in the Pacific, and 17 percent had already returned to the U.S. after an overseas assignment. The U.S. Navy, including the Marine Corps, postponed demobilization until the defeat of Japan... Initial demobilization in Europe On V-E day, 3,077,000 American soldiers were in Europe. Additional replacement soldiers were in the pipeline to be assigned to Europe although overall force levels had been declining for several months as the war wound down. Army and Army Air Force units in Europe were classified into four categories for the purpose of occupation, redeployment, or demobilization. Category I consisted of units to remain in Europe. The occupying force for Germany would consist of eight divisions and a total occupying force of 337,000 personnel to be reduced further in June 1946. Category II consisted of units to be re-deployed to the Pacific. About one million soldiers were slated to be sent to the Pacific, including 13 infantry and 2 armored divisions. 400,000 soldiers were to go directly from Europe to the Pacific to arrive between September 1945 and January 1946; another 400,000 were to be undergo eight weeks of retraining in the United States and continue to the Pacific to arrive by April 1946. About 200,000 air force personnel were to go to the Pacific, either from Europe or the United States... Defeat of Japan With Japan signing the instrument of surrender on September 2, 1945, the demand for rapid demobilization from soldiers, their families, and Congress became unstoppable and all previous plans became moot. Conscription was reduced to 50,000 men per month, less than the military's requirements for replacements. Soldiers, sailors, and marines in the Pacific became eligible for demobilization. The points required for demobilization were reduced several times, reaching 50 points on December 19, 1945. Ten aircraft carriers, 26 cruisers, and six battleships were converted into troopships to bring soldiers home from Europe and the Pacific...

The Children of World War Two - Evacuee Letters Home
 
07:13
During World War Two hundreds of thousands of children were moved out of London, and other major British cities, to escape the daily bombing, known as the Blitz. This was called evacuation. Many children had a wonderful experience with their new 'families' in the countryside, but sadly others did not. In the days before telephones and the Internet the only way to keep in touch with loved ones was by writing letters. These letters became a vital link between the children and their families, who otherwise had very little chance to see or contact them. Year Five imagined that they had been evacuated and were writing letters back home. This is the result. We hope you enjoy... Please check out our channel, like and subscribe. SWBTV, March 2013.

23. Collaboration and Resistance in World War II
 
45:30
European Civilization, 1648-1945 (HIST 202) One of the principal myths concerning collaboration during World War II in France, as in other countries, is that the domestic collaborators did so despite themselves, or to prevent even greater atrocities. In fact, many French, Belgians, Hungarians, Poles, Dutch and others voluntarily and enthusiastically abetted the occupying Germans. This collaboration, inspired by anti-Semitism and xenophobia, often resulted in extremely zealous persecution of Jewish nationals, communists, and others. Along with the myth of reluctant collaboration, France has also been obliged to confront the myth of widespread resistance, promulgated in part by a victorious Charles de Gaulle. Many questions concerning collaboration and resistance still remain unresolved in formerly occupied European countries to this day. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

World War 2 (in Europe) with Countryballs
 
13:00
So here it is! My new version of WW2 in countryballs! This version is more accurate as I added these things: -Vichy France and its countryball. -British Invasion of Iceland. -Romania and Bulgaria changing sides. -The Continuation War. -Turkey joining the war in the late 1945. I also made this in a way that it is not biased on one country. The older one was quite American biased by the end of it. So I hope this one is better than the older. The new version also includes the textbox. Originally, it was a dark grey box since I started working on this in late 2016. However after a long break on this project, working on Empires At War, and some other things, I then coninued this and eventually changed the textbox into a brighter one which shows the year (the change is seen in the video at some point). Some things from the older version, such as the Exotic Butter (FNAF 5 thing, USSR saying cyka blyat and others, are kept. I hope you guys would enjoy this vid.

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_home_front_during_World_War_II The United States home front during World War II supported the war effort in many ways, including a wide range of volunteer efforts and submitting to government-managed rationing and price controls. Everyone agreed that the sacrifices were for the national good "for the duration." The labor market changed radically. Peacetime conflicts with respect to race and labor took on a special dimension because of the pressure for national unity. The Hollywood film industry was important for propaganda. Every aspect of life from politics to personal savings changed when put on a wartime footing. This was achieved by tens of millions of workers moving from low to high productivity jobs in industrial centers. Millions of students, retirees, housewives, and unemployed moved into the active labor force. Hours worked increased as leisure activities declined sharply. Most families were allocated 3 US gallons (11 l; 2.5 imp gal) of gasoline a week, which sharply curtailed driving for any purpose. Production of most durable goods, like cars, new housing, vacuum cleaners, and kitchen appliances, was banned until the war ended. Gasoline, meat, and clothing were tightly rationed. In industrial areas housing was in short supply as people doubled up and lived in cramped quarters. Prices and wages were controlled. Americans saved a high portion of their incomes, which led to renewed growth after the war... Farming Labor shortages were felt in agriculture, even though most farmers were given an exemption and few were drafted. Large numbers volunteered or moved to cities for factory jobs. At the same time many agricultural commodities were in greater demand by the military and for the civilian populations of Allies. Production was encouraged and prices and markets were under tight federal control. Civilians were encouraged to create "victory gardens", farms that were often started in backyards and lots. Children were encouraged to help with these farms, too. The Bracero Program, a bi-national labor agreement between Mexico and the U.S., started in 1942. Some 290,000 braceros ("strong arms," in Spanish) were recruited and contracted to work in the agriculture fields. Half went to Texas, and 20% to the Pacific Northwest. Between 1942 and 1946 some 425,000 Italian and German prisoners of war were used as farm laborers, loggers, and cannery workers. In Michigan, for example, the POWs accounted for more than one-third of the state's agricultural production and food processing in 1944...

World War II Food Rationing: "Prices Unlimited" 1944 Office of War Information 11min
 
10:14
more at http://quickfound.net/ "Dramatized documentary short that shows what the consequences would be if the government ceased food rationing." Public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_rationing ...By summer 1941 the Office of Price Administration believed that, with factories converting to military production and consuming many critical supplies, rationing would become necessary. It established a rationing system after the attack on Pearl Harbor... Civilians first received ration books—War Ration Book Number One, or the "Sugar Book"—on 4 May 1942, through more than 100,000 schoolteachers, PTA groups, and other volunteers. A national speed limit of 35 miles per hour was imposed to save fuel and rubber for tires. Later that month volunteers again helped distribute gasoline cards in 17 Atlantic and Pacific Northwest states. To get a classification and rationing stamps, one had to appear before a local War Price and Rationing Board which reported to the OPA (which was jokingly said to stand for "Only a Puny A-card"). Each person in a household received a ration book, including babies and small children who qualified for canned milk not available to others. To receive a gasoline ration card, a person had to certify a need for gasoline and ownership of no more than five tires. All tires in excess of five per driver were confiscated by the government, because of rubber shortages. An A sticker on a car was the lowest priority of gasoline rationing and entitled the car owner to 3 to 4 gallons of gasoline per week. B stickers were issued to workers in the military industry, entitling their holder up to 8 gallons of gasoline per week. C stickers were granted to persons deemed very essential to the war effort, such as doctors. T rations were made available for truckers. Lastly, X stickers on cars entitled the holder to unlimited supplies and were the highest priority in the system. Ministers of Religion, police, firemen, and civil defense workers were in this category. A scandal erupted when 200 Congressmen received these X stickers. As of 1 March 1942 dog food could no longer be sold in tin cans, and manufacturers switched to dehydrated versions. As of 1 April 1942 anyone wishing to purchase a new toothpaste tube had to turn in an empty one. Sugar was the first consumer commodity rationed, with all sales ended on 27 April 1942 and resumed on 5 May with a ration of one half pound per person per week, half of normal consumption. Bakeries, ice cream makers, and other commercial users received rations of about 70% of normal usage. Coffee was rationed nationally on 29 November 1942 to one pound every five weeks, about half of normal consumption, in part because of German U-boat attacks on shipping from Brazil. By the end of 1942 ration coupons were used for nine other items. Typewriters, gasoline, bicycles, footwear, Silk, Nylon, fuel oil, stoves, meat, lard, shortening and oils, cheese, butter, margarine, processed foods (canned, bottled, and frozen), dried fruits, canned milk, firewood and coal, jams, jellies, and fruit butter were rationed by November 1943. Many retailers welcomed rationing because they were already experiencing shortages of many items due to rumors and panics, such as flashlights and batteries after Pearl Harbor... Many levels of rationing went into effect. Some items, such as sugar, were distributed evenly based on the number of people in a household. Other items, like gasoline or fuel oil, were rationed only to those who could justify a need. Restaurant owners and other merchants were accorded more availability, but had to collect ration stamps to restock their supplies... ...The kind and amount of rationed commodities were not specified on most of the stamps and were not defined until later when local newspapers published, for example, that beginning on a specified date, one airplane stamp was required (in addition to cash) to buy one pair of shoes and one stamp number 30 from ration book four was required to buy five pounds of sugar. The commodity amounts changed from time to time depending on availability. Red stamps were used to ration meat and butter, and blue stamps were used to ration processed foods. To enable making change for ration stamps, the government issued "red point" tokens to be given in change for red stamps, and "blue point" tokens in change for blue stamps... As a result of the rationing, all forms of Automobile racing, including Indianapolis, was banned. Sightseeing driving was banned as well. Rationing was ended in 1946.

Why are we so obsessed with World War II? | Keith Lowe | TEDxAthens
 
18:29
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. When we talk about World War II, what are we really remembering, and what are we choosing to forget? This talk looks at some of the hidden motives behind our unhealthy obsession with the war. Keith Lowe is a British historian and an expert on the Second World War and its consequences. His books include the critically acclaimed Inferno: The Devastation of Hamburg 1943, and the international bestseller Olethros (Savage Continent), which won the 2013 Hessell Tiltman Prize for history. He is a regular speaker on TV and radio, and has lectured all over Europe and America on twentieth century history. He lives in London with his wife and two children. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

This Man Built a WWII Fighter Plane by Hand
 
03:22
It’s one thing to build a model airplane as a kid, but to recreate an entire World War II fighter plane (that flies!) piece by piece? That’s some real DIY magic. When Martin Phillips, an English tool shop owner, received a single rivet from a WWII Spitfire as a 40th birthday gift, it changed his life. His challenge: to rebuild the iconic aircraft from the one piece. Amazingly, he did it. It took him 14 years and a million pounds, but Phillips scoured the world for spare Spitfire parts, machined ones that no longer existed and even found an old wing rusting behind a pub. The Spitfire is the ultimate symbol of Britain’s war effort, and Martin has been keeping the legend alive since his plane’s maiden voyage in 2013.

Ian Mosby: Food in Canada During World War II
 
17:59
On the eve of World War Two, new research methods were finding that most Canadians were malnourished. When Canada entered the war, the federal government took unprecedented steps to influence what Canadians ate, so the country would have strong soldiers abroad and reliable workers at home. Ian Mosby, author of "Food Will Win the War," tells Steve Paikin why food was considered so important to Canadians during the Second World War.
Midway Magic: F-4 Phantom II - Naval Aviation
 
13:26
Midway Magic: F-4 Phantom II - Naval Aviation USS Midway (CVB/CVA/CV-41) was an aircraft carrier of the United States Navy, the lead ship of her class. Commissioned a week after the end of World War II, Midway was the largest ship in the world until 1955, as well as the first U.S. aircraft carrier too big to transit the Panama Canal. A revolutionary hull design, based on the planned Montana-class battleship, gave her better maneuverability than previous carriers.[verification needed] She operated for an unprecedented 47 years, during which time she saw action in the Vietnam War and served as the Persian Gulf flagship in 1991's Operation Desert Storm. Decommissioned in 1992, she is now a museum ship at the USS Midway Museum, in San Diego, California, and the only remaining U.S. aircraft carrier commissioned right after World War II ended that was not an Essex-class aircraft carrier. The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II[N 1] is a tandem two-seat, twin-engine, all-weather, long-range supersonic jet interceptor aircraft/fighter-bomber originally developed for the United States Navy by McDonnell Aircraft.[2] It first entered service in 1960 with the U.S. Navy. Proving highly adaptable, it was also adopted by the U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Air Force, and by the mid-1960s had become a major part of their respective air wings.[3] The Phantom is a large fighter with a top speed of over Mach 2.2. It can carry more than 18,000 pounds (8,400 kg) of weapons on nine external hardpoints, including air-to-air missiles, air-to-ground missiles, and various bombs. The F-4, like other interceptors of its time, was designed without an internal cannon. Later models incorporated an M61 Vulcan rotary cannon. Beginning in 1959, it set 15 world records for in-flight performance,[4] including an absolute speed record, and an absolute altitude record.

Doodlebug // World War II Documentary
 
07:17
71 years ago, on June 13, 1944, a frightening new terror weapon rained down from the skies. Britons accurately termed it the "Doodlebug" because of the sound the engine made, but the silence was far more terrifying. Dolly and Ron Howard married in 1939, and like many other couples were separated when the War began. Ron was shipped off to India and Dolly was left to raise children and protect them from the Blitz alone. Doodlebug tells her story. Directing // Matt Sears Starring // Dolly Howard Shot on Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and Blackmagic Production Camera

World War II in Four Colors: How DC and Marvel Comics Re-Fought the War
 
51:07
A lecture I gave at the Selby Public Library on November 6, 2017, about the World War II-themed comic books published by DC and Marvel Comics during the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. CORRECTION: I decided to adlib some information I didn't have in my notes and simply got a couple of facts long. The War That Time Forgot series and the Losers both ran longer than what I state in the lecture. The answer I give when asked about the current state of the comic book industry is entirely my subjective opinion. Please visit my blog at: http://comicsradio.blogspot.com/

World War II Color B-25s in North Africa
 
11:39
The U.S. Army Air Forces' 12th Bomb Group -- the Earthquakers -- were the subject of a color AAF film while they were flying combat in North Africa. Seen here are rare outtakes -- raw footage -- shot for that production and archived by the Air Force for decades. Formed at McChord Field near Tacoma, Washington, the 12th Bomb Group's dark olive drab B-25s were mostly overpainted in desert sand camouflage, but a lone olive example is seen in flight. Watch for details like British bombs with round tubular fins. AAF bombers in North Africa sometimes used British ordnance. See a flexible nose gun mounting a small metal ammo can instead of the later flexible chute-and-box arrangement. Nose art including "Floogie" and "Sahara Sue" are prominent. At one point, the camera aims straight down to capture bombs exploding at a highway. A derelict Luftwaffe Ju-52 is passed by a convoy as the 12th moves up closer to the fighting. The film was all silent; we added some audio including actual B-25 engine sounds. If you'd rather hear it the way we got it, just hit the mute button. Now, step back in time through the magic of vintage Kodachrome movies as the Earthquakers fly over North Africa. The footage was probably taken in 1943.

1944. World War II. Colorado. Livy Dunne (Russell) has been thrown out of her home by her father, Rev. Dunne, because she's pregnant and unmarried. She's banished to rural Colorado, to go through with an arranged marriage to a lonely farmer, so her child will have a father. When she arrives in the tiny town, Livy and her betrothed are wary of each other. Worldly Livy is bored by Ray and the hardscrabble life he leads—despite his inherent goodness and wisdom. As the months pass, Livy learns more about this calm, practical self-effacing farmer. Slowly almost imperceptibly, Livy realizes she may have found home quite accidentally.

"All This and World War II" theatrical trailer 1976. This is the trailer for one of the most unlikely pairings: music of the Beatles with film footage from World War II. Where else can you see Hitler grooving to the tunes of The Beatles?! There are a suprising number of Bee Gees songs in the film - it was sort of a 'dry run' for their "Sgt.
