We will continue to add to this collection consisting of short film clips, primarily in black and white. Every effort has been made to ensure these film clips are in the public domain. Specifically, a few of these
videos were taken by photographers of the US Army Signal Corps and are part of a larger collection produced by Combat Reels. If you discover any to not be in the public domain,
please contact us and they will be removed immediately.
