W W II, War in the Pacific. Boxed set 4 VHS tapes, maps, guide, 1987, like new
|Online Auction Description|
In 1987, The Reader's Digest Association issued this chronicle of the Battle for the Pacific from archival footage shot by US military photographers. The cameramen recording these battles were in the midst of the action. They and their cameras took the force of nearby blasts. On the whole, the quality of the tapes is very good in spite of being shot during the hazards of live fire.
The bombing of Pear Harbor is an unsettling record, with real-time images of military personnel taking the brunt of a full-scale attack for which they were totally unprepared. There is also footage of the Japanese planes that may have come later from the attackers' cameras. Most of the record is in black and white but there is some interesting early color footage.
The set consists of 4 VHS tapes in a dark blue box, together with a Viewer's Guide. This booklet contains a chronology of Pacific battles, as well as specially prepared maps to accompany each section.
Because of time limitations with the tapes (90 minutes length), only major battles are shown. The Viewer's Guide contains a detailed list of the battles in the Pacific and the maps are marked to show locations.
Vol. 1: The First Years (Pearl Harbor, Corregidor, Midway)
Vol. 2: Counterattack (The Solomons, Tarawa, the Burma Road)
Vol. 3: 1944 Closing In (Saipan, Guam, Leyte Gulf)
Vol. 4: 1945 The End Approaches (Iwo Jima, Manila, Okinawa)
This set is the 1st Edition (1987) and is like new. As far as we can determine it has been viewed only twice â by the original purchaser (who took part in some of those battles) and by us (to determine the quality of the tapes).
