Across dangerous wastes of ice and snow the camera lens follows these engineer soldiers as they construct roads stretching deeper and deeper into the Arctic. As Army civilian scientists and soldiers of the First Engineer Arctic Task Force penetrate deeper into the Arctic vastness, new problems and new dangers present themselves. In some places, the snow and ice covering the land prevent the engineers from reaching the dirt, or fill, needed for road building. Men and vehicles must travel over the snow. But as the shape of the land far below alters, hidden changes take place in the unseen snow layers underfoot. Dangerous, man-killing crevasses -- great vaults and hundred-foot caverns -- are formed. It is a challenge, a frontier which must be conquered. American ingenuity, determination, and scientific skill are dedicated to this task."--National Archives and Records Administration1053ocn701797280visu19580.63The Admiral Nimitz storyMilitary historyNaval historyBiographyFrom the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-19751051ocn701798034visu19640.63D-DayFrom the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-19751041ocn701797151visu19570.63Engineer supply mission"Combat engineers are seen building roads in Burma and air strips in North Africa, and relieving flood victims and communities in times of disaster. In war and in peace, wherever America can use their services the United States Army Engineers are "Standing by -- ready when needed." In this issue audiences are introduced to the men and women whose job it is to provide combat engineers in the field with the equipment they need when they need it. As the camera goes behind the scenes in the Corps of Engineers, viewers will meet, among other things, an electronic brain that answers questions."--National Archives and Records Administration1041ocn701797411visu19610.63Operation ReadinessFrom the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-19751041ocn701797180visu19570.63Army newsreelFrom the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-19751041ocn701796659visu19530.63Soldier in BerlinFrom the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. "The impression that a young Corporal in the Army gets while on active duty in Berlin is vividly related in the first program of Series VI of THE BIG PICTURE. Being stationed in a small area within the "Iron Curtain" places a great deal of responsibility on the Army personnel, but allows them to see the city during free time. This picture gives the viewer a chance to see all of Berlin through the eyes of a GI serving his country there.""--National Archives and Records Administration1041ocn701797199visu19570.63Army satellites"Reveals the dramatic, suspenseful story of how the Army--when the prestige of the United States throughout the world had been shaken by events beyond its control--stirred the hearts and emotions of the American people with an epic display of scientific and technical teamwork. The story depicts the drama of the crucial 84 days before launching Explorer I. The story begins on the morning of November 8, 1957, at Huntsville, Alabama. Cameras cover a sudden meeting called by Major General John B. Medaris with his staff which included Dr. Wernher von Braun. From this point, the film develops with dramatic sequences leading into the final "countdown" in the blockhouse at Cape Canaveral, Florida. "Army Satellites" is an actual step-by-step documentary filmed over a five month period by Army Signal Corps cameramen ."--National Archives and Records Administration1041ocn701797135visu19570.6342nd Rainbow DivisionFrom the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-19751041ocn701797409visu19610.63Military Assistance Advisory GroupFrom the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-19751042ocn701797458visu19620.63Road to the wallHistory"Some walk ... some ride ... some are born on the way ... many will die along the "Road to the Wall."
