The American Propaganda Machine (2-DVD)

History of World War II - The American Propaganda Machine (2-DVD Set)

History of World War II - The American Propaganda Machine (2-DVD Set)

Struggling for renewal following the Great Depression of the early 1930s, the U.S. hoped to stay focused on domestic growth and keep out of conflicts overseas, but the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor demanded action and action demanded finances. Witness how the United States met this enormous financial challenge through innovative promotional campaigns!

The Second World War cost approximately 304 billion dollars. The Roosevelt Administration met this colossal challenge through some brilliant financial wizardry. Tax reforms, higher wartime wages which resulted in higher tax returns and legislation which provided a healthier environment for growth of industry were some of the successful attempts at raising much-needed revenue. Corporate profits went from $6.4 billion in 1940 to $11 billion in 1944, while the machines to win the war got made in unbelievable abundance.

Financing to pay for the war, however, came largely by borrowing from the American people through the sale of war bonds, which raised about $50 billion. Another $150 billion came from financial institutions. During the war, commercial banks alone increased their Treasuries holdings from $1 billion to $24 billion.

This historic set of DVDs provides a great opportunity to witness the efforts of government agencies at promoting the sale of war bonds during World War II.

EDITORIAL REVIEW:

These outstanding DVDs provide a rare opportunity to see what life was like in the United States during World War II and also the efforts of government agencies at raising resources needed for the war through the promotion of war bonds.

Despite differences in color, race or creed, the entire country united behind the war. Colleges across the great continent rose to the occasion. Young men and women took up the challenges thrown open by the war to hone their skills and use this to win the war. The clips on these DVDs bear testimony to this enormous and moving show of patriotism cross the country - on university campuses, in cities and towns and on the battlefront in an effectual manner. The story of a bomber crew who had to bail out after being shot is particularly moving and serves as proof of the immense sacrifices being made by soldiers every day.

The DVDs also focus on the irrefutable contribution of Latin American countries - Brazil, Bolivia and Chile to the war. Without the men and raw material that came from these friendly neighbors, the war may not have ended as early as it did.

Through disturbing yet effective clips and through some very realistic reenactments, the films on these DVDs attempt to motivate U.S. citizens to invest in war bonds. I have no doubt that they met with resounding success.


CUSTOMER'S REVIEWS:

"I am astonished at the brilliance of the war department and other government agencies. They showed tremendous insight and innovation at promoting war bonds. The films on these DVDs serve many purposes - generating patriotism, motivating people to work harder and outlining the benefits of war bonds to the nation and the individual. They also serve as news capsules, keeping the people at home abreast of war news through vivid picturization of the action. I am really fortunate to have these fabulous DVDs on my shelf."

"I remember quite clearly the many stories my grandpa told me about the war and the changes it brought to everybodyís life. People just shaking off the effects of the great depression were called upon to make even greater sacrifices - of sons and daughters, of home and property. These DVDs reinforced the mind-pictures I carried from Grandpaís narratives. I plan to present these DVDs to him on his 92nd birthday and I can already see his beaming face as he witnesses one nostalgic scene after another. Thank you a2zcds for this wonderful DVD set - just the gift I was looking for my grandpa!"
