About this item

It was assumed no color films existed in Japan until the victorious U.S. forces arrived in 1945. This DVD is remarkable proof that those assumptions were verifiably false. Now you can discover the story of a nation at war from its rare color films, plus letters and diaries from those who lived through it. Almost all the material in this color documentary has been recently discovered and allows the viewer to experience Japanese culture and events from an entirely new perspective. Subject matter includes Imperial Japanese troops in 1931 Manchuria, remarkable domestic scenes of 1930's Japan, preparation for war in 1939, and images of occupation in 1940's Shanghai.

"The Last Bomb" - 35-minute U.S. Government Film, Exclusive Color Footage Of Atomic Bomb Devastation in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, "Restoring Film" - The Complex Process Of Returning Film to its Original Quality, "The Power Of Sound" Documentary On Composer Chris Elliot, Interactive Maps and Photo Stills Gallery, Diary Of A Japanese Soldier, Photo Gallery.

Customer review by Archaeo5

3.0 stars by Archaeo5

This film was good to learn about the background of Japan more than war footage. Not much real war footage from the Japanese point of view, but aftermath footage in China was ok. There are a few things in the film that makes it worthwhile if your a military historian or have interest in pre-war Japan, but not much for those that like battle footage.
