    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.

        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...

            As the 1960's dawned and the Cold War settled into a long, tense stalemate, the American public became increasingly concerned about both the strength of the country's nuclear deterrent and the safety of the weapons in its arsenal. As a result, the Department of Defense became increasingly sophisticated in its attempts to assuage public fears, including by commissioning various films to show the American people what their armed forces were doing to counter the threat and ensure public safety....

              As the Cold War settled into a long stalemate, the intelligence services of the Communist Bloc recruited thousands of agents to operate in the free countries of Asia and Western Europe, with a particular focus on trying to "turn" U.S. military personnel stationed in unfamiliar countries. Produced by the U.S. Defense Department for the benefit of American servicemen, "Espionage Target: You" dramatizes three different real-life cases, each culled from the records of the different service...

                They are silent and colorless. Most of them are odorless. They can incapacitate within minutes of exposure. These invisible enemies are called nerve agents, and on the battlefield their use spells death for the unprepared soldier. Produced by the U.S. Army for training purposes, "Nerve Agents" lays bare the facts surrounding these sinister chemical weapons. From how and why they paralyze the nervous system to methods of battlefield medical treatment to safety procedures for defending against...

                  Two countries, two different conflicts and one pivotal year: 1965. That year, for the first time in American history, troops of the U.S. Marine Corps' Fleet Marine Force were deployed in simultaneous operations in two separate hemispheres. In the Caribbean, Operation Power Pack saw Marines engaging in a mix of urban combat and peacekeeping duties on the gritty streets of the Dominican Republic, while in Southeast Asia the Marines carried out traditional amphibious landings and trekked through...

                    They are the workhorses of the U.S. Navy. Fast, versatile and heavily armed, destroyers have been the backbone of U.S. naval operations since the early 20th century when the USS Bainbridge -- the nation's first "torpedo boat destroyer" -- was commissioned. Narrated by Jack Webb ("Dragnet"), this vintage documentary traces the evolving role of the destroyer in the U.S. fleet, showing how this tough and infinitely adaptable class of ship still plays an essential role in America's naval...

                      As U.S. combat operations in South Vietnam expanded in the mid-1960's, the inability of the Saigon government to control large swaths of the countryside, as well as the primacy of the Communist 'shadow government', became major obstacles for American military planners. "This is not primarily a military problem," Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara would say. "It's a battle for the hearts and the minds of the people of South Vietnam." As a part of that effort, the Marines in South Vietnam...

                        "You must remember that your blood smells good to the Anopheles mosquito. And she will notice a hole in your netting as quickly as you'll notice the only pretty girl at a party," intones the narrator of this 1967 informational film, produced by the U.S. Army to educate soldiers about the deadly reality of malaria before deploying to tropical countries like South Vietnam. Demonstrating step-by-step how to effectively use insect repellant, how to make sure a tent is safe from mosquitoes before...

                          As U.S. troops fanned out across South Vietnam, American forces found themselves grappling with a unique type of fortification: underground tunnels. These subterranean structures, many extending deep into the earth, allowed Communist troops to shelter, to evade and then to re-emerge and attack areas thought to be secure. Encapsulating the lessons learned from years of anti-tunnel operations, this 1969 informational film was part of the U.S. Army's effort to educate troops on how best to...
