Wow. That was one of the best movies like this I have seen, not to mention that most of the footage was new to me, a great soundtrack, and in color! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
Thank you very much for sharing this.

Some of the footage struck me as possibly being 'colourised' monochrome footage. Does anyone else agree?

Some nice stuff though.

Great! 8:00 is brief but rather grim.The end scene is also excellent. Amazing footage.

Halifax it seems.

The whole selection has been colourized.

In color WWII looks like Vietnam a little, especially when those A-26s were bombing the bridges and hills. It makes everything seem much more recent and not just a simple recollection of things we've never seen personally. Five stars.

Well, being the film buff I am, there's a couple of seconds of footage from "Air Force" in there, the scene of the Japanese sailors getting blasted on the carrier deck. Not hatin' but I know what I saw.
