The True Glory (DVD)

The Oscar-winning documentary, known as one of the best war films ever created, directed by Carol Reed. This feature length film was produced by the Allied military during 1944 and 1945 as a permanent ’on-screen’ record of the war campaign in Europe, and covers all the major engagements from D-Day to the fall of Berlin, including Omaha Beach, the Falaise Gap, Caen, Arnhem, the liberation of Paris and the Battle of the Bulge. Compiled from the selection of over six and a half million feet of film, it includes some of the most devastating and memorable images of war ever captured on camera.

Over 700 frontline cameramen supplied material for the film. 32 were killed, 101 wounded and a further 16 reported as missing in action during its making. Complete with an introduction by General Eisenhower, who was personally involved with the making of this auspicious film, The True Glory won a well deserved Oscar for Best Documentary' in 1946.
