Mission to Rabaul - Nonstop action in the South West Pacific 1943



"This is one of the all time classic documentaries to come out of World War 2 -- an action packed epic! I digitally restored the audio & video."

Rabaul, a large natural harbor on the eastern end of the huge Island of New Britain (located northeast of New Guinea in the Southwest Pacific) was an essential strategic linchpin for the Japanese from which they could project their forces throughout the region. They poured tens of thousands of troops, hundreds of airplanes, and thousands of tons of supplies and material into this base to make it a mighty fortress. The Allies' brilliant solution to the Rabaul conundrum was to isolate it, slowly starve it, and bypass it -- rather than assault it directly.

This dramatic, high impact documentary film shows some of the most memorable, exciting, and extensive footage of 5th Air Force B-25G bombers conducting tree top level attacks with machine guns and delayed action bombs to come out of World War 2 .The first step in the reduction of Rabaul was the seizure of a string of Japanese bases along the Northeast coast of New Guinea.

The film focuses on the decisive and revolutionary impact of the air component in the strategy, including high & low level attacks, parachute drops, and resupply, accompanied by a magnificent musical score drawn from Holst's "The Planets." You're literally sitting in the cockpit or in the tail gunners seat watching amazing low level attack runs. You'll also see P-38s, A-20s, B-25s and B-24 cooperating with US Australian and New Zealand Forces securing forward air bases to strike against Rabaul and for the invasion of New Britain. "Mission to Rabaul" shows how each piece of this classic strategy culminated inevitably in the first escorted, massed bomber strike on Rabaul on 12th October, 1943 an essential goal in the reduction of Japanese defenses.

This video really didn't need back-ground Music. And I would have rather
heard about the guns and bomb types used on the planes rather than the
sounds of their engines with music. 

Автор MakeMeThinkAgain (4 месяца)
The adaptation of the B-25, usually a high altitude bomber, to low level
strafing with 8 to 12 fixed .50 cal machine guns in th nose was one of the
most brilliant theater adjustments of WW2.

I am Maureen Dapal from Rabaul on New Britain Island PNG. My father lived
during the war - he was actually 3 years old when the war arrived.
He stayed in a dug out hole in the ground and survived only on coconuts.
He told me that eventhough a large amount of bombs was dropped on the
island not plenty people were killed - and few received injuries minor and
serious injuries.

Interesting in-house doc from the 5th AF. Obviously they wanted to make
sure they weren't being forgotten way out in the SW Pacific, what with
Europe, North Africa, and the Mediterranean getting most of the attention
back home in 1943.

The music, by the way, is various selections from Igor Stravinsky's
Firebird Suite and Gustav Holst's The Planets, with a little tiny bit (I
believe) of Ferde Grofé's Grand Canyon Suite during the pretend 'travelog'
portion involving the 'family' on the airfield.

As for competition over supplies...didn't you mean 5 and 7 af, there Robin.

The major USAAF combat organizations in the region was Thirteenth Air
Force, which was formed in November 1942 as a command and control
organization to organize many widely separated Seventh Air Force and
independent units scattered in the South Pacific Area during the Solomon
Islands campaign. As the war progressed, Thirteenth Air Force units moved
into the South West Pacific theatre and coordinated their activities with
Fifth and Seventh Air Force units in New Guinea, the Netherlands East
Indies and Philippines during 1944 and 1945.

minutes.

I like the part the talk of prayer, we must not forget to live for God and
Country. My dad was a gunner on the B-17 , my next door neighbor growing up
was the top gunner on the B-25 in the Pacific, he talked how the japs cut
off heads and rolled them down the hill to his camp at night. I love to
say, IN GOD WE TRUST, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, GOD BLESS AMERICA. We need to
repent as a nation or we can lose our nation.

The 5th AAF was amazing in the Pacific after Gen. Kenney took over. They
took B-25s, removed the bombardier nose equipment and loaded it with Ma
Deuces (50 cals) for strafing. They also rediscovered some old parafrag
bombs that allowed them to bomb at low altitudes while making strafing runs.

It's all quit a story for those into history.

Автор Jonno2summit (11 месяцев)
@ Ozark man- Oh me too! I was looking at the film of the bombing, and
trying to match up individual bomb strikes to existing craters, but looks
like most of them are overgrown now. Thanks to Zenos we can investigate
this stuff and go to bed way too late. lol

Had an uncle in the "Air Apache" squadron called "Rough Raiders," flew in a
B-25, and a father's friend in a like unit. The latter said they used to
call up the Japanese just before arriving to bomb and tell them "We're
gonna kick your ass and there's nothing you can do about it." The Japanese
would reply, "Roosevelt eat shit! Roosevelt eat shit!"

I wish the writers wouldn't put in their nonsense about what "man fells

the B-25s had .50s installed in their noses and later models a 75mm cannon
that along parafrags allowed them to wreak havoc

WWII Bomber footage never fails to amaze. The tonnage it took to destroy
targets was amazing. Most bombs and bombing campaigns caused very little
damage. Was any enemy ship EVER sunk never mind hit by a B-17?
Skip-bombing and strafing were effective, though.

My father was stationed at Hickam Army Air Corp Base. The US ARMY AIR CORP
LOST MEN AND PLANES before Japanese even reached Pearl Harbor and the Navy.
My father lost two friends within seconds of the FIRST PLANES coming over
their Air Field. The Japanese planned to destroy the Army Air Corp before
going after the Navy. Yet December 7 is forever Pearl Harbor Day, how about
the USAAC men who died before anything was dropped in Pearl Harbor?

I lived in PNG in the mid 60's and from 1970 thru to 1981 in Lae, Port
Moresby, Rabaul, Madang Wewak, and have seen most of the smaller areas
mentioned in the ops. I have the utmost admiration for all armed services
who endured the enemy, malaria,and every other disease that were thrown at
them, I am proud to have known many older civilian Australians who served
as Coast Watchers, and to have enjoyed the warmth & friendship of the
native population who had so many atrocities done to them by the Japanese.
It's a pity the country today seems more of a hell hole than what it was
during WW 2.

More forgotten battles in forgotten places. Even the big battles will only
be remembered by historians in the future, like so many forgotten battles
and wars of the distant past. WW1 and WW2 wars will be remembered but the
battles may well be forgotten. In the distant future, when these films no
longer exist, it will be the archeologist that will find evidence to prove
or disprove that such battles even ever too place.

The B-25's and A-20 were stripped of their side and rear armament. Forward
facing turrets were retained and 4-6 .50's were added in pods in the nose.
So you could have 10 forward firing .50's - withering fire. They would
come in low and drop para-frags - bomb with parachutes right into
revetments to destroy airplanes. Against shipping they would drop skip
bombs with delayed fuses right into the sides of barges and transports.

Many of the people involved in making these war and military propaganda
movies later went on to do great works in Hollywood and television news
networks in the 50s and 60s. John Huston is probably one of the Most
famous of these. His films about the islands of the Aluetians in Alaska
were predecessors to "Midway" and several of Humphrey Bogart's films.
