Friday Film: "Advance Base" - A Seabee Homage

A word of warning for those who find images of enemy dead upsetting, this film was made during WWII and depicts some of the effects of the hard fought war to capture island bases for American forces - and also how those bases were built by the U.S. Navy's Construction Battalions. Narrated by Quentin Reynolds, author and war correspondent.

In any event, the film, due to its graphic nature was - um- "withheld" from public distribution for some years.
