“The Tanks Are Coming!” – Vintage Recruiting Film

In the build up to American involvement in World War 2, which was perceived to be inevitable by the Roosevelt administration, there were numerous films made by various studios to help increase recruitment into the Armed Services.

This one, from 1941 is a color film for recruiting men for the 1sr Armored Force. It shows some interesting insights to the training regime that may have been experienced at the time, though it’s clearly been propagandized and polished up for the sake of the film.

Please keep in mind that this film reflects the nature of its era.
