King of Battle

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "Portrays dramatically the development of artillery in the Army from 1776 to 1957. Viewers will see the cannon that fought with Washington, a primitive weapon but good enough to pound the British at Bunker Hill, support the successful attack at Trenton, and aid in the defeat of Cornwallis at Yorktown. They will learn how artillery played a decisive part in winning the Battle of Gettysburg. Crammed into 28 minutes are stock shots of the allied Meuse-Argonne offensive that finally broke the back of the German Army in 1918; the Pacific campaign of World War II where artillery became the most effective weapon against the Banzai charge of the Japanese; and finally, Korea -- where American commanders traded manpower for fi [...]

Missile Man

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "In this era of both missiles and missile men, the epidose covers training activities at three of the major centers in which the Army's missile men receive their highly specialized training. The United States Army, as almost everyone knows, is placing an ever-increasing emphasis on guided missiles, projectiles which can deliver deadly conventional or atomic warheads to enemy targets hundreds or even thousands of miles away. Perhaps the most remarkable fact about these amazing weapons is that they have all been developed in little more than a decade. The combination of nuclear weapons and guided missiles have, in a very real sense, revolutionized our concepts of warfare. Although the nation has entered a new era, it i [...]

Missile on Target

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "Today most television viewers have seen the drama of the launching pad when a long range missile is fired into the air. An orange surge of flame, a thunderous bellow of sound, then up it goes until as far as the naked eye is concerned it disappears into the skies. What then? Today's episode is the story of "What Then?" It is the story of how long range missiles streak through the air to strike unerringly even a small target a long distance away. The film documentary begins a few miles from the White Sands Proving Ground in New Mexico one morning not long ago. As pointed out in the narration of the film, at the White Sands Proving Ground and other areas an elaborate, all-out testing and development effort is being pu [...]

History of Firepower

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "The story of man's weaponry from the caveman's punch to the missile man's firepower. Recalling man's repeated assurance that the "ultimate has been achieved," the film goes on to show how he shrugs it off with a "maybe so." From the dawn of history, the developing art of war has been a story of the struggle of military men to extend the range and power of the fist - the struggle to make it bigger, more effective, more capable of delivering a knockout punch. The United States Army has that "knockout" punch. Its mission is the defense of our nation and the stakes are greater than ever before. Some of the many fine aspects of the film deal with the Army's programs of research and development which continue to improve t [...]

Broken Bridge

Loading...
"Medal of Honor winner Audie Murphy stars in this release. His two young sons' prying questions about space-age missiles prompt Murphy to make a tour of modern Army installations and revisit some of the places he saw in Europe during World War II. First stop is Germany and Hitler's stadium in Nuremberg. Moving on to Wurzburg, Murphy stops at the Third Division area and inspects the platoon he commanded as a First Lieutenant 15 years before. In Germany, the most decorated soldier of World War II gets a look at the Corporal missile and the Redstone missile. A side trip to Norway gives him an orientation view of the Nike Ajax and Hercules ground-to-air missiles. Returning to the United States, Lt. Gen. Arthur G. Trudeau gives the movie star a grand tour of White Sands Missile Range to w [...]
