For sale is one Combat Reels DVD, Volume #17 from Series #2. This DVD video contains the official and actual combat camera footage of the 36thInfantry Division as they make the Invasion of Southern France and move towards Germany . There is approximately 118 minutes of total footage. This is NOT A DOCUMENTARY. This is a collection of excerpts from the official, silent, black and white, 35mm reference reels stored at the National Archives in Washington D.C. The 163rd, 165th, 166th, 167th, 168th Signal Photo Companies originally captured the footage; it was then turned over to the National Archives for preservation where it has sat for 65 years. There are sometimes many combat units represented on one reel, due to the procedure that the Archives used when the original reels were cataloged. However, this Combat Reels DVD has been edited to strictly contain only footage of the 36thInfantry Division and only shows other unit footage when two or more divisions are intertwined. A reference page begins each chapter describing the available information for the coming images. This information lists the unit responsible for the footage, as well as the cameraman’s name, the location, date, combat unit being filmed, and a brief description of the actions taking place. The reels used for this video have all been positively identified to contain film footage covering the 36th Infantry Division.

On August 15th, 1944 the 36th Infantry Division, also known as “Lone Star Division” or “T-Patchers”, were assigned to VI Corps of the U.S. Seventh Army, with the assignment of participating in the invasion of southern coast of France in “Operation Dragoon” and would land at “Camel-Beach” near Saint Raphael, France. Series II, “Liberation of Western Europe”, begins here and continues through to the end of October 1944, when the “Lost Battalion” is successfully reached by elements of the 442nd Infantry Regiment.Images included on this research video are strictly of soldiers of the 36th Infantry Division as they fight and live in the field while fighting the Nazi Empire.The first clips show men of the 36th Division resting and preparing aboard their transport just days before the invasion. Next troops are launched from their transport ships and assault the beaches from their LCVPs. Soldiers push inland to reach and capture Grenoble, Loriol, Beaurepaire, and Lyon, France. Next the 36th Moves through Bourg-en-Bresse and into Besancon, Oiselay, and Luxeuil les Bains. The division then moves to cross the Moselle River at Noir Gueux and Plombieres. General Dalquist and the 36th HQ are visited by Generals Marshall, Devers, Patch, and Truscott. The series closes out with images from the rescue of the “Lost Battalion” as artillery shells filled with supplies are fired to them, and men from the Japanese-American Regiment fight to reach the cut-off unit over ground. Enjoy these close up shots of the actual locations the 36th Infantry Division fought for and occupied. Examine as well the equipment, vehicles, weapons, uniforms, helmet markings, and of the faces of the men themselves on these candid reels of history.

Some of the footage can appear darker than other parts due to possible abnormal exposure of the original film. The close-up shots are great for persons trying to identify relatives or historians just wanting to see the original uniforms and equipment of this particular unit. Shoulder patches and helmet markings are quite common, as well as vehicle bumper markings. There are shots of officers from the 36th Division, as well as your average grunt.

There is some of this footage you may have seen in documentaries about World War II, however, most of the footage you will have never seen before. At Combat Reels we are huge fans of WWII documentaries and the general history of this conflict, and we have never seen most of this footage before. Here at Combat Reels it is our goal to providing all fans and historians of World War II with a quality research tool covering as many combat units as possible. There is not DVDs of this nature currently available any where else. We have spent countless hours in the archives researching the endless reels of footage to bring all of it forward to the public. You have never viewed World War II until you see the candid shots that Hollywood didn’t take the time to find.

All of the images have been watermarked with a Combat Reels logo, which is not obstructive to the images. This is done to prevent theft of our exhaustive research efforts concerning commercial usage.
