"Midway: The Battle That Changed The Pacific War"



"Midway: The Battle That Changed The Pacific War"




DVD Content
This DVD contains the U.S. Navy produced film "The Battle of Midway".
Unedited footage of the Midway Battle, showing the carnage wrought on Midway Island.
The film begins with this: "This is the actual photographic report of the Battle of Midway. IN the number of surface and aircraft destroyed, it is the greatest naval victory of the world to date. The following authentic scenes were made by U.S. Navy Photographers."
A very patriotic film with lots of patriotic themes and music.
For me, this film really hits home at the end, as it chronicles the search and rescue efforts of the American aviators who were shot down. Some were still being rescued TWO WEEKS after the battle. But the part that really got me was the long line of Navy vessels, all conducting burials at sea. We have all seen the Hollywood movie "Midway", but you need to see this to appreciate and understand the battle.
A great WWII film. It is also in color, which makes even more amazing.
The footage has not been edited. It has been left exactly as it was captured from the 16mm film.
20 minutes running time.

  • Produced by GRS Videos (TM). GRS Videos is dedicated to the preservation of Naval Aviation film footage. This passion began when the son of a recently deceased Korean War veteran told me how he had thrown away all of those "old 8mm films of planes flying off of a ship". Yes, I cried. Our heritage MUST be preserved. As a veteran of Naval Aviation, I have a strong interest in ensuring that our stories are not forgotten. If you have footage (16mm, 8mm, VHS, Super 8, Beta, or Digital) contact me at PLAT_Collector@verizon.net. I will also gladly trade any footage I have for new footage (any format). So, if I have Naval Aviation footage you want, and you have something I do not have, contact me and I am confident we can work something out. I am always looking for new PLAT mishaps and home movies/video of carrier operations and life on carriers. All proceeds go into obtaining and preserving more Naval Aviation footage. Gary R. Schreffler served on USS Midway (with HS-12) from 1984-1991.
