This Is Korea!
In this Navy-financed documentary, Hollywood director John Ford chronicles the Korean War. The film alternates between footage from the battlefront and scenes of daily life in Korea and on military bases. Throughout, Ford relies solely on never-before-seen images of the war rather than stock military films. The combat segments offer footage of naval warfare, mortar blasts and rocket fire, while the calmer scenes portray soldiers celebrating Christmas and interacting with Korean civilians.
