When Marines named the dog sake because of the liquor that was found the narrator says it's probably their first taste of Japanese culture instantly thought they had seen plenty of it by then lol

This is some really great old footage - and in color. So - it's good for that. You should however be aware that you can't take what the Narrator is saying as Gospel. They get the broad strokes of things OK but ... when it comes to some of the details ... eh .... .

And what's the result? Tails between legs shameful run of colonizers from Vietnam, Syria, Afghanistan etc. Leaving Americans victims to the enemy. There are still hundreds of Americans stocked and unsaved in Afghanistan. Exposed to Taliban murdering. What about that bravery? Sounds very famous. And still theorizing? Shameful. Would shot mouth.

I purchased a 1971 911 Porsche, a gift from her “Gramps”, from Jimmy Doolittle’s Grand Daughter who lives on Maui, Hawaii. She’s told me many stories about how once a year all the “Doolittle Raiders” would get together at “Gramps” house. She is a good friend of my wife’s and they talk regularly.

One way or the other, I work and cross the windmill of cause and effect to surround this world Solve Why was an atom bomb dropped by Hiroshima, Nagasaki? Hiroshima is because there is 500 in Douwa district 5000 of 47 metropolis and districts of the whole country. Because the Douwa district was a Korean village, I was discriminated. It kills a domestic animal to have been discriminated, and is cruel, and make incest; and of the illicit sex is because commit a crime. Because there are many roasted meat restaurants in the Douwa district, I find it immediately. Nagasaki is the land which early Christianity in Japan of a heretical religion, the Society of Jesus propagated, and this is because the grudge of the revolt of Shimabara remains. Why was a one-third of the citizen of the prefecture sacrificed by the Battle of Okinawa? This is because Okinawa kills a lot of pigs so that braised pork belly of the Soki soba shows it and is cruel. Of the killing indirect as for the eating meat is because commit a crime. Kei Omuro swindles Mako, and why do you disgrace authority of the Imperial Family? It is repetition of the history and is synchronization. A Korean of chamber (no large ) kei got into the royalty this time as I lost it, and Toranosuke Oumuro turned into the Emperor Meiji, and having stolen the Throne succession. Originally it is a same tribe because it is the Korean who the Imperial Family assassinates Prince Shotoku, and stole the Throne succession of the Japanese Emperor. Japan was defeated to fight though I performed a crusade of self-defense and the liberation in Asia, and why did you provide the victim of 3 million people killed in action and 500,000? This is because Japan is a country charged with a mission to expiate the crime that the world people committed. Christ was executed as a nail was torn off by 8 million God, and a line was cut off and was executed, and Creater God was the way it goes threw himself into the crater in the volcano, and having expiated God and a human crime, and Prince Shotoku was assassinated. This is cause and effect of the compensation, too.

A Marine friend of our family, Bill Boylan, served on Tinian. His first day, he was ordered to march 300 feet and stand watch over the edge of a cliff. Reaching the site, he heard an aircraft approaching. He couldn't tell from which direction. Suddenly, flashing past below him, he witnessed a Japanese Zero. The pilot waved to him. Probably just as shocked.

Excellent documentary! My Grandad was a POW on the Burma Railway for over 4 years, after the ship he was on was sunk and he was picked up from the sea by the Japanese. When the camp he was in was liberated, he had malaria and was deemed not well enough to go on a ship that was taking other POW's home. That ship got sunk, but strange to say, he was fortunate to have caught malaria and been too ill. He never spoke about what he experienced in captivity, but on his deathbed, he poured his heart out to the priest about the horrors and suffering he experienced and witnessed. The priest told us what he spoke about. War is so cruel, to the fallen victims of war, rest in peace!!

The American military lost about 165,000 lives for the entire Pacific campaign. They lost near 300,000 dead in all of WWII. As horrible as that is consider, the Soviet army often lost several times that many soldiers in a single week of combat.

An All-American I know that it wasn't in his greater numbers. But they also put Germans and Italians in concentration camps. I also know a close friend of mine's grandfather, who had lost an arm at the end of World War 1 worked as a railroad police officer during World War II and personally killed, on six separate occasions, six German saboteurs. There was a lot more trouble with Germans in this country than there ever was from Japanese, or Italians.

There were 120,000 Japanese in the Internment camps. 40,000 of them were loyal to Japan and not only said so but formed gangs that fought with Japanese loyal to America. It was so intense at times that American troops had to come into intervening with tanks and tear gas. Imagine having 40,000 agents loyal to Japan roaming free inside America in WW2. Compare that to the 350,00 civilians that the Japanese interred in camps in the regions they conquered where they were beaten if they did not bow, used as labor and starved, and sometimes raped. Even the Leftist history of the Internment, "Infamy" reports this fact! NO ONE WAS FREE. People had to suspend their normal lives, conserve and go on rationing, violators were jailed, hundreds of thousands of men and some women died; far worse than having your life interrupted! As during the Civil War when Lincoln suspended Habeus Corpus, arrested journalists, and "Copperheads" who wanted to make peace with the South, as Wilson did during WW1, FDR had to take measures to protect the stability of the nation during a terrible world war that seems to be beyond the comprehension of most Americans, today. It was a bad time and unhappy things happened to a lot of people, most of them in Europe, so mostly to whites. And those Japanese U.S. soldiers did not fight Japan, they were sent to Europe where they excelled in dealing out death. And BTW; German and Italians were Interned, too. The camps were built the same way that military housing and civilian housing were made. Poor whites lived in far worse conditions at the same time in many parts of rural America. In this film, they complain about the food! Some white Americans were starving during the same time with no government aid! Even books that criticize the Internment as "racist" cannot deny that the youth had a fun time, women had a good time, there were schools, libraries, theaters, and sports facilities. The only real complaints came from the men who felt they were not respected as the head of the family because the kids liked to eat with each other and the women got into clubs, etc. But the men were allowed to brew saki and they liked that. And we're supposed to now add this to the litany of fake criticisms of America, and especially White America?

Color video (whether origin film or added at a later date) I think adds an important element to the story compared to black & white. Hope in there (near) future more black & white videos from WW1 & WW2 colorized, have film sharpened, speed matched, etc.. Not to glorify but to bring into focus the horrors of war - to better remind those of the consequences of such in more realistic terms.

@Do tell okay well I’ll spread some knowledge from what I’ve learned about Okinawa 1945. The United States created the Tenth Army for the invasion the army units consisted of the 7th, 27th, 77th and 96th Infantry(army) Along with the marines but I don’t know what units they were. So maybe that will help you off in your searching.
