Japan, Our Far East Partner

"Japan is the key to the fate of the Far East. Once again for the second time in the march of modern history those words have urgent reality. But now there is a difference in their meaning. THE BIG PICTURE cameras focus on the United States Army which has come to know Japan well in recent years -- in war, in occupation, and finally, in partnership.

Exercise Flash Burn

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. "In recent months, in the press, over the radio, and on television, the American people have heard of the new and awesome developments in warfare which put modern muscle in the Army. Such muscle is the 280mm cannon, the Honest John artillery rocket and the Corporal, a long-range guided missile. Such modern muscle is tactical television and air delivery of masses of men and their equipment. In "Exercise Flash Burn" viewers see what happens when our forces are attacked by an aggressor and how these weapons are employed on the battlefield. For this issue the Big picture takes its audience to a deserted area in North Carolina for the answer."--National Archives and Records Administration.

Ordinance in Europe

Loading...
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.

Role of the Army

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. "Depicts the position and responsibility of the United States Army in the nation's defense establishment.

This is the theme of "Role of the Army." This era in which we live, burgeoning with new mighty weapons, does not mark any decline in the value of ground troops, nor does it raise any doubt that in a future war, the final decision will lie in the hands of the Army."--National Archives and Records Administration.
