1 edition published in 1954 in English and held by 248 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

Research and development in the Arctic( Visual )

4 editions published between 1956 and 2008 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The mission of the First Engineer Arctic Task Force of the Army's Corps of Engineers is dramatically filmed. 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 Administration

What his duties are and how he can help the military commander is today's subject."--National Archives and Records Administration

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
