Shortly after World War Two, the country that was formerly known as the United States was divided into three countries; Weston, Easton, and Floridan. The country of Easton has been in the Communist sphere since World War Two.
Throughout Easton, mainly in the inaccessible areas of West Virginia, bands of twenty to a hundred guerrillas have been conducting raids and ambushes against the Easton government forces.
Yesterday, the President of Weston directed the Secretary of Defense to provide appropriate military assistance to these guerrillas.
Men, your mission is to infiltrate into Easton, organize the guerrillas, and conduct unconventional warfare operations.
(Note: their mission was actually to conduct Guerrilla Warfare operations, a subset of Unconventional Warfare.)
This film was produced by the United State Army in 1963 for syndicated distribution to as many as 320 US commercial television stations. “The United States Army presents The Big Picture, an official report produced for the Armed Forces and the American people.” The video is presented as an historical document and in no way represents commentary on the current political situation of the United States.
My book Shooting Your Black Rifle seems appropriate to this series of films. If you would like to purchase it, click on the image below.
