About this item

Description "[T]his short is easily one of the best yet turned out by that skilled Government agency [the Office of War Information Film Unit]. It pulsates with action, inspiration for every American, and is full of drama, human interest and delightfully natural humor. Its story recounts the transportation of a U.S. Army Motorized Division from a coastal area to a far-off destination in the country. Eye-filling and thrilling are the scenes of loading heavy and light tanks, motor vehicles, motorcycles, et al, with special emphasis placed on the division's personnel during the long rail track."
