Overview

Subtitled The Battle for New Britain, this 56-minute documentary was assembled by the Office of War Information. Lensed in the Southwest Pacific, the film deals with the efforts to recapture the island of New Britain from the Japanese. After a grueling training period (shown in unsparing detail), the Allied forces launch their three-pronged assault of the island. Despite heavy losses, the victory goes to the Americans and British. Released domestically by RKO Radio, Attack! was released in conjunction with the O.W.I's fifth war loan drive.
