They Deliver the Goods

About this item

Description This film depicts the details of the workflow in supply chain that routes wartime provisions and weaponry to soldiers in the South Pacific, and encourages civilians to do their part in facilitating production. "How our fighting equipment gets through to our fighting men in quantity and on time. The mountains of supplies for combat loaded at ports of embarkation are unloaded under combat conditions and under fire in the South Pacific. From behind-the-lines General Supply Depots they are moved through jungle swamps to advance bases, to the firing lines. The never-ending battle of supply is graphically told in these pictures."
