Lest we Forget

Synopsis
A documentary produced in 1947 by the US Signal Corps, which had unparalleled access to combat film shot by Allied cameramen and to Nazi footage captured after the war. It concentrates on the experiences of the ordinary GI from training in England prior to D-Day to the fall of the Third Reich less than a year later. Camera crews followed the men ashore on Omaha Beach and were with them as they fought their way through France and across the Rhine into Nazi Germany. Shows brutal house-to-house fighting, and the devastating results of strikes by Allied fighters and bombers. Provides an opportunity to understand how Americans, both military and civilian, perceived the last year of the war.
