Why We Fight [1942]

Monday, July 23, 2007

Why We Fight is a series of seven documentary (propoganda) films commissioned by the United States government during World War II to demonstrate to American soldiers the reason for U.S. involvement in the war. Later on they were also shown to the general U.S. public to persuade them to support American intervention.

Most of the documentaries were directed by Frank Capra, who was daunted and terrified by Leni Riefenstahl's propaganda film Triumph of the Will, and worked in direct response to it. The series faced a tough challenge: convincing an isolationist nation of the need to become involved in the war, desegregate the troops, and ally with the Soviets, among other things.
