There isn’t as much video (movie, film) of WW2 compared to our modern day military operations, but we still stumble upon quite a few interesting bits on Youtube and elsewhere.

Here’s an interesting movie about D-Day, including shots of C-47’s and Waco’s, that I found on the website of the 101st Airborne (thanks guys !).

 

And here’s a little bit of advertising about the ‘new’ Waco glider, being demoed for the ‘news’. Followed by a few other interesting (Youtube) videos I found on the web

Operation Varsity

This was the largest airborne attack ever performed and aimed at supporting the allied ground troops in crossing the Rhine. Operation Varsity took place near the German town of Wesel, not far from the Belgian and Dutch borders.
