Synopsis by Sally Barber
In the late '30s, the world faced political turmoil and destruction from the forces of fascism. The Road to War was created in 1938 to educate the American public on critical events occurring overseas, including the political status of Hitler and Mussolini, Japan's attack on China, and confrontations in Europe. This early documentary told the American people about the nation's need to intervene in the growing conflict abroad. Vintage newsreels and authentic combat footage combine to relate the disturbing situation in a graphic and convincing manner.
