Defense of the Philippines, 1941
On 8 December 1941, Imperial Japanese bombers and fighters launched an unprovoked attack on U.S. airfields in the Philippines. Simultaneously, Japanese infantry landed at several key beaches on the main island of Luzon. This was but the first phase of Japan’s plan to seize the Philippines and use its strategic harbors as intermediate staging bases for further aggression in the South Pacific. However, General Douglas MacArthur and the U.S. and Filipino forces on the islands had prepared as best they could for just such an event. Over the next few weeks, they mounted a determined defense in an effort to turn back the Japanese forces and upset their plans for further conquest. This film, the first in the Philippines film series, covers the first weeks of Imperial Japan's invasion and General MacArthur's eventual application of War Plan Orange in late December 1941

Surrender of the Philippines, 1942
The Battle of Bataan (7 January – 9 April 1942) was a battle fought by the United States and the Philippine Commonwealth against Imperial Japan during World War II.

The commander-in-chief of all U.S. and Filipino forces in the islands, General Douglas MacArthur, consolidated all of his Luzon-based units on the Bataan Peninsula to fight against the Japanese army. This film covers the execution of War Plan Orange, defense of Bataan, evacuation to Corregidor, and eventual surrender of U.S. forces.

Liberation of Manila
On 9 January 1945, the U.S. Army returned to the island of Luzon in the Philippines. Landing on the beaches along Lingayen Gulf, Sixth Army sought to undo the Imperial Japanese Army’s conquest of 1942. To that end, between 3 February and 3 March, elements of Sixth Army participated in a month-long block by block, building by building battle to liberate the Philippine capital of Manila from its Imperial Japanese occupiers. “Liberation of Manila” recounts the U.S. Army’s most difficult experience with urban warfare during the Second World War, and the only one in the Pacific Theater.

Desert Storm: The Vanguard
For almost four hundred years, the possibility of tactical decisiveness hinged upon the commander's use of their most mobile arm, the cavalry. Whether screening the flanks or operating forward of the main body, the vanguard has always set the tone. Operation Desert Storm was no different. “Desert Storm: The Vanguard” tells the story of the First squadron, Fourth Cavalry, the division cavalry squadron of the 1st Infantry Division. Operating as a true combined-arms team, 1-4 CAV was able to defeat the enemy time and again, using synchronized fires and maneuver. This is their story.

Okinawa 1945: Planning Operation ICEBERG
On 1 April 1945, U.S. forces invaded the Japanese home island of Okinawa. It was the largest joint amphibious assault mounted during World War II in the Pacific Theater. The invasion of Okinawa was the culmination of three years of operations in the Pacific against Imperial Japan. The film explores the planning and preparation for Operation ICEBERG from September 1944 to 1 April 1945. “Okinawa 1945: Planning Operation ICEBERG” examines the U.S. Army operations process as well as planning by echelon from field army, corps, and division with special emphasis on current Joint doctrine. This film is the first in a two-part series covering Operation ICEBERG and the U.S. Tenth Army’s securing of Okinawa.

Victory at Saratoga
On October 17, 1777, Lt Gen John Burgoyne’s field army surrendered to Maj Gen Horatio Gates, Commander of the Northern Department. This was America's first significant victory against the British during the Revolutionary War, owing mainly to the total force effort of Continental soldiers and colonial militias working together. Today the battles at Saratoga are remembered as one of sixteen Revolutionary War streamers attached to the flag of the U.S. Army.
