Midway( Visual )

"This is the way it was--the story of the battle that was the turning point of the war in the Pacific, told wherever possible with actual film shot during combat. It exemplifies the combination of planning, courage, error and pure chance by which great events are often decided."--Title screens. In June of 1942, quite possibly the most important naval encounter of WWII took place in the middle of the Pacific, at Midway Island. While fictional, the film uses a great deal of documentary footage of the actual battle, featuring hundreds of ships of all sizes, from patrol boats to battleships and multiple carriers with hundreds of aircraft. US forces get wind of an imminent Japanese action and tries to sort fact from fiction, while the Japanese plan and execute their own attack plans. An epic on a grand scale that incorporates a huge cast, the film emphasizes the sheer scale of battles fought in the Pacific theater, which even when victorious, cost hundreds of lives

Diamonds in the Rough: Legacy of Japanese-American Baseball( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in Undetermined and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A perfect example of what the game of baseball has meant to all Americans." -Ted Spencer, National Baseball Hall of Fame "Baseball, and an unlikely hero, sustained hope for Japanese-Americans interned in WW II." -Sports Illustrated "Highly Recommended. This is an excellent documentary video about the little-known but fascinating history of Japanese-American baseball. It focuses on the story of one man, Kenichi Zenimura, who is considered to be the father of Japanese-American baseball. Part of the program's success can be attributed to Noriyuki "Pat" Morita (of "Happy Days" and "Karate Kid" fame); as a former internee, he narrates with skill, empathy, and his low-key humor." -EMRO Review During World War II, 120,000 Japanese-Americans, including this program's host and narrator, Oscar-nominated actor Noriyuki "Pat" Morita (The Karate Kid), were relocated to remote internment camps, such as the one in Gila River, Arizona, for the duration of the war. Behind the barbed wire, baseball helped many of these people survive this humiliating ordeal. One man, despite his small size, became a very big hero. His name was Kenichi Zenimura. Today, he is commonly referred to as "The Father of Japanese-American Baseball." This poignant documentary pays tribute to Zeni; however, it is much more than the biography of one man, it is the story of a legacy in which baseball helped transcend bigotry and hatred to bring pride and respect to Japanese-Americans who loved the game. Covering over 100 years of history, it is filled with great baseball memories, including wonderful anecdotes of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig
