Phillip W. Stewart

For the first time, in book form, there is concise information about the surviving motion pictures that were taken during what was known then as the Great War, over 90 years ago. BATTLEFILM: U.S. Army Signal Corps Motion Pictures of the Great War, details 488 film titles that cover America’s part in this conflict. Included are films produced and donated (or seized) by Allied and Central Powers countries. Each reel of action is described using data gathered from actual Army records.These historic films of World War I action exist today on silent, black and white motion picture film. They were shot on-location, as history happened, by dedicated and courageous soldier-cameramen and are now preserved in the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) as part of one of the world's largest film archive.This information-packed guide is designed to help you find the films and scenes you need through the books logical layout and an extensive index. It also includes the NARA catalog number and the Archival for each title so that you can conduct further research or order a copy for your own film or video collection. Whether you’re a historian, media researcher, documentary producer, a re-enactor, or a student of film, this book provides an accurate and timeless reference to the moving images of America’s effort in the “War to End All Wars”.
