This is one of Our Films called Gung Ho, "The Movie". This movie (produced by Paramount Pictures) was based on a true story about the USMC making a raid on Makin Island to distract the Japanese from the real goal of landing on Guadalcanal. At the time, the Japanese were like a steam roller across the pacific, and there nest conquest was Australia. Guadalcanal stopped the Japanese and it was the beginning of the end for the Rising Sun. The problem was, the Japanese did not think so at the time, and why should they, they won every conflict prior to this. Included in this DVD are the actual newsreel of Carlson Raiders aboard the USS Nautilus. Very rare. We hope you enjoy!
