Original Training Films

This section is dedicated to training films from World War Two. These are all period films produced in a joint venture between the War Department and Hollywood to create material that would assist in training new military personnel. These films are a great resource to learn how and what GIs were taught in training during World War Two. As always, we will add new material as we find it!
