FACTUAL FACTORY is a whole new way of looking at stock footage. Factual Factory- Stock Footage, (black & white) WWII, WW II, WW2, WW 2, World War Two, World War 2, World War II - General MacArthur is made Supreme Commander in the South West Pacific. Troops from Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the U.S. come to make a second attack on New Guinea. These men are faced with huge challenges: Malaria, Dysentery, starvation, snakes, Jungle Fever, etc... This was a war of man against man.

Allies started drive against the German Africa core. With General Alexander's lead the British conquer the German's. Russia- November 1942- Russia started it's defense. Battle of Stalingrad- one of the bloodest battles. Cost the Germans over half a million men.
