Synopsis:
In 1940 soldiers newly drafted into the military lacked enthusiasm for the war. Morale was at an all-time low and the American war effort was at risk of falling to indifference. Fortunately, in 1942, Major Frank Capra answered the call. He created a series of documentary style, informative films with the aim of explaining to the troops why they were putting their lives on the line and for what principles they were fighting. These popular propaganda films were viewed in many arenas in order to bolster the war effort and raise public opinion. They were screened in war plants, factories, hometowns and foreign movie theaters.
Most importantly, they helped shape the public's awareness of the dangerous fascist movement that was threatening freedom and liberty the world over, giving everyone a boost of patriotism and the commitment to fight.
