War on Film from The UK National Archives
The UK National Archives, celebrating the 70th anniversary of the beginning of World War II created a series called "War on Film" in which military records specialist, William Spencer, "explores the true stories behind popular war films and uses original records to depict actual events." The clips are all less than five minutes each, like the one above, deconstructs one of the war films like The Great Escape, The Man Who Never Was, Hope and Glory, and Carve Her Name with Pride. Thanks to my colleague, Jeff Feinstein, for sending me the link.
