| Interesting wartime documentary
This is really quite an interesting film,presumably shown to GIs before they embarked on troopships to the UK.It contains a lot of information on the blitz and what rations were received by the civilian population.This country was not the multi racial society of today,so the prejudices that sprang up after the war were not evident.This must have been difficult for many American servicemen to understand bearing in mind their army was still segregated.The section featuring Bob Hope was poorly done,and would have been little help to servicemen trying to make sense of the antiquated currency.Despite the best efforts of the film makers there was a lot of friction between the troops of the US and the UK."Oversized overpaid and over here" was how they were regarded.Howeverwithout them we would by have won the war.
