Default Combat Camerman Footage

This is just a compilation of several pieces of footage filmed by combat cameramen on various fronts during World War Two. Some pretty amazing pieces of film. Highlights for me were GI firing a .30 cal form the hip, German firing an MG34 from the hip, 3:04 one of the view existing pieces of footage showing American and enemy troops fighting in the same frame.

Warning: There is some brutal stuff in this video (i.e. people burning and people being shot)

Amazing footage showing total carnage with powerful music.

Sound and film editing is well done.

The clip of the American Marines firing on Japanese soldiers is the only footage of both soldiers in the same frame filmed during the war. That epic footage was shot by Norman Hatch on Betio (Tarawa) during the action near the Bonnyman bunker. I just returned from a 9-day trip to Betio. Amazing place.
