North Atlantic Treaty Organization : (NATO) -- partners in peace( Visual )

2 editions published in 1954 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. "Signal Corps cameramen cover our participation in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, a new and revolutionary development in American history. This is a factual report with swiftly moving scenes and exciting narrative on how our country, in the last forty years, has thrown its full economic and military power into a deadly struggle to prevent the triumph of a dangerous aggressor in Western Europe. Never before has this country committed herself to go to the aid of a country outside this hemisphere under attack--never before have we received similar guarantees from other countries. In this film presentation, viewers learn how the morale and self confidence of European peoples and their armies have risen far above the low level of 1949, thereby taking much of the steam out of communist propaganda."--National Archives and Records Administration

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975
Pentomic Army( Visual )

2 editions published in 1957 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is an age of streamlining, with everything from automobiles to guided missiles reflecting the dynamic look of the future. The United States Army is no exception, and with this in mind this episode documents the new concept called "The Pentomic Army." As shown, the Army's modern fighting division today is lean and functional, simple in organization and efficient in performance, keeping pace with the many marvelous inventions at its disposal. The Pentomic Division, so named because it consists of five battle groups, is a semi-independent, self-contained fighting unit designed to operate effectively on an atomic battleground, should the need ever arise. As pointed out in this film presentation, today's Pentomic Division is characterized by the ability of fewer men to deliver a more devastating concentration of firepower on any would-be aggressor."--National Archives and Records Administration
Sky divers( Visual )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Skydiving ... a leap from two miles up ... a descent at 120 miles an hour ... this is routine for members of the U.S. Army Parachute Team--champions in competition and combat. In this episode, through an unusual helmet camera technique, U.S. Army skydivers demonstrate daring, free-fall skills which have thrilled international audiences. This 30-minute documentary film is a tribute to an elite corps of paratroops and their contribution to military airborne techniques."--National Archives and Records Administration
Nerves of the Army( Visual )

2 editions published in 1954 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. "Throughout the world, wherever the Army stands, the Signal Corps keeps it alert. In making this picture, the camera crews visited Signal Corps engineering laboratories at Fort Monmouth, N.J., and the Army Electronic Proving Ground at Fort Huachuca, Arizona. Television audiences will look at a simulated battlefield of the future, and see how some Signal equipment, and how communications systems developed at the proving grounds, would be employed. The operation of the new 100-inch camera with its infra-red lens, capable of penetrating 26 miles through haze, will be shown in reconnaissance missions. This is a new form of reconnaissance -- under atomic or non-atomic conditions."--National Archives and Records Administration
