War II Morale on the Homefront Series Film Collection World War II was an era of great emotions. Families were broken apart, notices of casualties or deaths of loved ones were affecting every community, scarcity of goods was the order of the day and sacrifice for the common good was important. This collection of films highlights the bravery of the soldiers to the homefront and conveyed positive messages to the populace to show that their efforts and sacrifices - sometimes very personal sacrifices - were accomplishing good and valuable things in the world, things they could be proud of being a part of. Here are the contents of this collection: Avenge December 7 (Pearl Harbor) (1942) War bond film designed to excite the people in the United States to buy war bonds to help destroy the Japanese in punishment for their attack on Pearl Harbor Producer: Unknown Audio/Visual: Sound, Black White Run time: 1:45 D-Day Minus One (1945) A history of the operations of the U.S. 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions in the 1944 invasion of France.
