Summary Eyewitness accounts taken from the soundtracks of documentary films produced by Lou Reda Productions in the WWII battle classics series. The first section chronicles the unseen story of the violent decade of miscalculation that brought the U.S. and Japan into confrontation. The second tells the story of the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and those who tried to defend it. The third tells the previously untold story, in gruesome detail, of the savage treatment of Americans held by the Japanese as P.O.W.s. The last tells of the unknown combat journalists sent to communicate to Americans the vital importance of defeating the Japanese war machine. It also reveals the heroes of Iwo Jima who not only planted the flag, but also the countless, nameless others who fought and died to make that unforgettable moment possible.
