Combat America (Part 4)
Combat America (Part 4) - FDR Presidential Library 1945 - Video 23 - U.S. Army Air Forces. Four discs comprise Combat America. The viewer needs all four. The US Air Force sent Clark Cable to England to live with and film a group of pilots and their crews as they prepare and eventually fly bombing runs over Belgium, France and finally Germany. Captain Cable interviews the men, films them as they train and begin bombing. Vivid handheld action footage from inside the cockpit of a bomber documents the pilots first raid in Germany. Footage shows the planes being attacked by the enemy fighters on route to the target, dropping their bombs on the target and encountering the enemy fighters again on the trip home.
