Item #: 655498638473 -

    If one were to unpack its jagged, irregular shoreline -- straighten out all the islands and inlets, all the peninsulas, bays and harbors -- the Maine coast would stretch out over three thousand miles, longer than that of California or Texas. And while the Maine coast may seem distant from the rest of America, it is on these craggy shorelines where America truly began. Join former NBC News correspondent and A&E "Biography" host Jack Perkins for a guided tour of this remarkable place called...

      Though the first SEAL teams had been stood up in 1962, for many members of the public it was 1969's "Men with Green Faces" that served as their introduction to these fearsome warriors. Produced by the Navy as both a promotional piece and a recruiting tool, this vintage film is narrated by members of the SEALs themselves, who share recollections of their missions and thoughts about what it means to them to be a member of America's most elite fighting force.

        It is one of America's most diverse, yet compact, national parks. It is a place of rocky shorelines, deep forests and the tallest mountain on the Atlantic coast, and from its founding in the early twentieth century, the beauty of Maine's Acadia National Park has entranced generations of visitors. Hosted by Jack Perkins (of A&E's "Biography" series), this documentary is a look at one of America's favorite destinations, and a tribute to the men and women who keep and preserve it. Featuring...

          By 1967 the armed forces had produced plenty of documentaries about their operations in Vietnam, and these had usually tried to stay above the fray of domestic political controversies. But not this time, as the film's narration immediately goes for the jugular of the antiwar movement. Devoting equal time to operations by the Navy and Marine Corps, the film attempts to correct public perceptions of the war by showing the good works being performed by the military. From search and rescue...

            The modern U.S. armed forces are more than 15% female. Yet it was scarcely a century ago that the previously all-male force accepted its first female recruits onto active duty, paving the way for future generations of servicewomen to be represented in an increasingly diverse number of military occupational specialties. This special collection includes three Cold War-era recruiting films aimed at persuading young women to sign up for a stint in the military. From the archives of the U.S. Army...

              It was one of the longest air campaigns in the history of warfare. From 1964 to 1973, the American air war over Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries dropped a higher tonnage of bombs than were dropped on Europe during the entirety of World War II. This special collection includes three vintage U.S. government films dealing with the Vietnam air campaign. From the archives of the Air Force comes "The Twenty-Five Hour Day", which highlights the work of F-105 fighter-bombers in support of...

                In the late 1960's the United States Military Academy at West Point faced growing problems with enrollment, as increasing discontent over the Vietnam War drove a parallel decrease in applications. With fewer of the best and brightest interested in military service, the Army risked being deprived of the talented young men that its officer corps needed. Produced in 1968, "West Point: The Army Challenge" was a recruitment film meant to correct the academy's reputation as a place where "they lock...

                  Military honor ceremonies are an integral part of life in the armed forces, used to both to honor the achievements of the living and to memorialize the sacrifices of the dead. But where do these ceremonies originate from, and how are they conducted in a modern military? Produced by the Army at the height of the Vietnam War, "Honors" traces the evolution of the military honor guard from medieval times to present day. Neatly divided into two parts, this vintage training film walks soldiers...

                    On January 23rd, 1968, units of the North Korean Navy seized the USS Pueblo, an intelligence gathering ship operating in international waters off the eastern coast of the Korean peninsula. With the ship and its crew in their custody, the North Koreans proceeded to milk the incident for every ounce of propaganda value, producing dubious evidence to show that the Pueblo had repeatedly violated North Korea's territorial sovereignty. "The Pueblo Incident: Analysis of the North Korean Evidence" was...

                        They are the iron fist of the ground-gaining forces, combining speed and maneuverability with great versatility and firepower. Armored vehicles are integral to U.S. military combat operations, capable of punching holes in enemy defenses and speeding through before an adversary has time to react. This special collection contains two vintage U.S. Army training films, both focusing on the use of armored vehicles. "Tank Company Team in Night Attack" (1962) documents the tactics and preparatory...

                          Nestled at the bottom of the world, the continent of Antarctica is a vast expanse of mountains, canyons and freezing desert tundra. Almost twice the size of Australia, Antarctica remains the most inhospitable and least explored region on the surface of the Earth. In the postwar era, growing scientific curiosity about the Antarctic led to the establishment of many semi-permanent bases and installations there. Although international treaties prohibit weapons of war on the continent, the...
