Watch World War II films and documentaries of the war with Hitler, plus see the first three films in Frank Capra’s Why We Fight series. Prelude to War, which won a Best Documentary OSCAR®, The Nazis Strike and Divide and Conquer were released in 1942 and ’43. Capra, who had been a successful director for 20 years already, enlisted Hollywood star Walter Huston to narrate them. Even Walt Disney had a part in the series—he, along with his staff, created the animated map sequences for the films. The propaganda series was shown in theaters and on military bases around the United States, but were thought to have revolutionized the art of documentary filmmaking.
