Soldier in Berlin

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. "The impression that a young Corporal in the Army gets while on active duty in Berlin is vividly related in the first program of Series VI of THE BIG PICTURE. Being stationed in a small area within the "Iron Curtain" places a great deal of responsibility on the Army personnel, but allows them to see the city during free time. This picture gives the viewer a chance to see all of Berlin through the eyes of a GI serving his country there.""--National Archives and Records Administration.

Ordinance in Europe

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. "Ordnance in Europe is a big, sprawling story and it can be told in many different ways. One way is to tell about the payoff--when ordnance activity is finally translated into battlefield action. Another, is to tell the story in terms of the people who make it and finally, supply. BIG PICTURE cameras cover those three phases of the story. In addition, coverage is given to salvage and the gigantic task of maintenance associated with field recovery of vehicles. In this film presentation, viewers will learn how ordnance personnel in Europe contribute strongly to the effectiveness of the American soldier, and the security of his country."--National Archives and Records Administration.
