Disc 2. Commandos: "U.S. Army Sgt. Sullivan is in an against-all-odds war adventure about a group of misfit soldiers he trains to stage a daring mission in North Africa. The platoon is ordered to take over an Italian camp, but as soon as the American soldiers reach their target, all hell breaks loose when some unexpected twists get in the way of completing their mission." Eagles attack at dawn: This story "is centered on a rescue mission to retrieve Israeli commandos from a Syrian prison. The operation is a covert maneuver involving members of the Israeli Army and Security Services".--Container. Hitler's SS: portrait of evil: "An overall look at Hitler's regime, focusing in on two young brothers from Berlin who join the Nazi camp"--Container. Go for broke: "The 442nd Regimental Combat Team is honored due to its make-up of mostly Japanese-American volunteers who loyally and courageously fought in World War II against their homeland and in the name of the United States. In particular, the film focuses on Lt. Mike Grayson, who holds prejudices against his men; ideas that were prevalent about all Japanese-Americans at the time. But as he watches the valiant men selflessly engage in battle, the lieutenant's biases are slowly chipped away until they are completely dissolved by the end of the war"--Container
