NARRATOR: It’s the March to Victory! Dateline: Hollywood. As our nation throws itself into our national defense everyone is eager to participate! Now five of the silver screen's biggest stars behind the camera have answered the call. Film directors John Ford, Frank Capra, William Wyler, George Stevens and John Huston all accept commissions in the Armed Forces. With such films as "The Battle of Midway", the "Why We Fight" series, and "Memphis Belle", these filmmakers go forth to document this global war. From places like the Pacific islands, Omaha Beach and Dachau their experiences will no doubt forever change how they see duty, sacrifice, cruelty, and the art of the motion picture. In the hands of superb journalist and storyteller Mark Harris these epic tales are woven together with enough grace and skill to rival the filmmakers he profiles. This has been The March to Victory!
