The 1943 Army Signal Corps Presents: ‘Baptism of Fire’ (VIDEO)

Got 30 minutes for a little history?

“This movie, nominated for an academy award when it came out, was produced to help men deal with their fear of combat and the uncertainty of knowing how they would be able to handle the stress and uncertainty of hand-to-hand combat. It was highly restricted when it was released due to its depiction of the brutal reality of hand-to-hand combat.”
