Battle Cry (1955) - When a group of eager young men enlist in the Marines in 1942, they don't expect to spend all their time kicking their heels engaged in training assignments and carrying out non-combatant roles. Frustrated, the only benefit appears to be having extra time to devote to their wartime romances, particularly that between Private Andy Hookens (Aldo Rey) and Pat, a New Zealand widow. But just as they decide to commit to one another, the Marines finally see some action…

Objective Burma (1945) - Hollywood legend Errol Flynn leads the troops in this suspense filled journey through the sweltering Burmese jungle. When his unit are parachuted behind enemy lines on a mission to destroy a key Japanese radar station, it appears that everything is going their way: the objective is accomplished, and they reach their rendezvous at a disused air-strip. However, the presence of waiting enemy soldiers forces a re-think, with a long, tense walk through a jungle filled with Japanese soldiers standing between them and safety.

Operation Pacific (1951) - Dedicated Navy man Duke Gifford (John Wayne) has a tough time trying to take command of a US submarine following the death of his commanding officer. For one thing, Duke feels guilty over the events that led to the captain's death. Add the fact that his ex-wife (Patricia Neil) is aboard serving as a nurse, and that she's more than determined to become his love interest, and he's a man with a lot on his mind. These factors, plus faulty weapons and a sea full of Japanese ships make his assignment all the more hazardous.
