Rebirth of Seoul

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. "In Korea, the aggressor's challenge was met and turned back by the United Forces of the world's free nations. Yet in the backwash of war there always remains a second challenge -- the thousands of orphans, the millions of homeless, the countless villages and cities ravaged and almost completely destroyed. Our cameras focus on one such city, Seoul, the Capital of the Republic of Korea. It is the story of a city twice the parade ground of Communist troops, four times a battlefield. Rebirth of Seoul is also the story of man's enduring will to triumph in the face of the greatest adversity. With other free members of the United Nations, the United States met the Communist attack in Korea with bravery and sacrifice. Today, [...]

The 1st Calvalry Division in Korea

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. "The Army on horseback that once was the United States Cavalry is no more, for our Army today is a mechanized force. But "cavalry" is a proud word in military terminology and no one displays that pride more than the men of the 1st Cavalry Division. They call themselves "troopers," like their tough forbears who, a century ago, rode against the Indian tribes of the west. Today, these men of the division (sometimes called "the first team") keep alive the cavalry's legendary tradition of bravery by fighting, when they are called upon to fight, with courage and an indomitable will to win. THE BIG PICTURE brings to the screen the story of the 1st Cavalry Division in Korea; a story as illustrious as any in the cavalry's magn [...]

The 2nd Infantry Division in Korea

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975." ... documentary of the famous "Indianheads," the men of the U.S. 2nd Infantry Division and the vital role they played in Korea. Although the fighting in Korea is over, the deeds of the 2nd Infantry Division will long be remembered. Out of the struggle in Korea have come many accounts of great suffering and even greater heroism, but few of them can match the story as told in this BIG PICTURE program. Through careful editing and with emphasis on "close-ups" of the men themselves, this outstanding documentary seems to tell the personal story of the soldiers of the Indianhead Division who lived up to their proud motto -- "Second to None."--National Archives and Records Administration.

Brush Fire - Korea

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "The Army's weekly television series marks the end of its sixth year of programming. In observing this occasion, it has prepared a reissue of its first program, and perhaps best remembered documentary of the Korean War, "The First Forty Days." Although the title has been changed to "Brush Fire -- Korea," this is a story of how a handful of men were locked in bitter combat with a ruthless enemy army of 5 divisions. A soldier of the Army Infantry tells the dramatic story of our first forty days in Korea--a glowing tribute to the officers and men of the 24th Infantry Division.

Korea Today

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "A few short years ago, the rugged Peninsula of Korea was the scene of some of the hardest and most bitter fighting of modern times. "Korea Today" becomes a study of American soldiers helping a nation to help itself. As seen in this film, the savagery and violence created by the war have been wiped away with the generosity and love of the American soldier on duty in Korea. Housing, public buildings, businesses and transportation facilities have been patched together or constructed from scratch. American Army know-how, Army supervision, and Army equipment have played a vital role in this rehabilitation, working closely with the Korean people. Just as important has been the creation of a new Republic of Korea Army. Thi [...]

Role of Armor

Authentic combat footage shows the successful employment of armored vehicles in World War II and in Korea. An indication of what lies ahead is also given with a view of the most modern armored vehicles being tested at Army proving grounds."--National Archives and Records Administration.
