20 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Rob Morris on July 28 2001
Format: DVD
This 62-minute color DVD is taken from a war documentary done in 1944 and meant for Home Front theater audiences. It is absolutely superb. First of all, it is directed by Oscar-winning director William Wyler, who also did the 'Memphis Belle' news documentary. Second, it is carefully put together to give viewers a feeling for what life was like on a great American aircraft carrier in the Pacific in World War II. Third, the whole thing is in exceptionally good color. The film follows the 'Fighting Lady' (not her real name, because of the war and because it represented all the carriers) from the time the first planes arrive and land on her decks through a series of hard-fought campaigns, including Kwajalein, Truk and the 'Marianas Turkey Shoot'. The footage is excellent, whether showing the daily lives of men on the ship, from the captain to the pilots to the cooks and dishwashers, or showing actual combat footage taken from the gun cameras of American fighters and fighter-bombers. The action footage is amazingly good. Narration is provided by Robert Taylor, an actor who was a Naval Reservist during the war. It is first-class in every way. I recommend it for anyone interested in life on aircraft carriers in World War II, in good color combat footage, in watching planes take off and land on a narrow, pitching deck, or WWII naval history in general. This is a bargain at twice the price.

Format: DVD
I agree with the previous review on most accounts and to watch this is truly great insight into what life was like on an aircraft carrier. The scenes of combat are actually breathtaking. It gives one a great appreciation of the war.
The only drawback is that the film is spectled with sort "America is God" propaganda (such as referring to the enemy Japanese pilots as 'evil japs'). This is understandable considering the time and circumstance of the war and film, but it may irritate some modern viewers.
On the whole, I would say the film is absolutely worth the price. Educational and entertaining. After I watched it grilled my dad on his experiences on his aircraft carrier. It spreads a bit more knowledge than your average hollywood blockbuster would.

An outstanding example of the wartime documentary, in color no less. Not exactly politically correct, but what do you expect? We didn't start the damn war.
