Birth of the B-29

Below is a 3-part WW2 documentary/propaganda video on the B-29 Superfortress bomber, a plane that was used heavily against Japan toward the end of the war and would eventually drop the atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This video was created before the atomic bombs were dropped.

Atomic Bomb Video

Below is a color video showing scenes on the ground in Hiroshima not long after the atomic bomb was dropped and also showing the mushroom cloud of the Nagasaki bomb just after it was dropped. Also included are brief statements by two of the crew members of the planes that dropped the bombs, Col. Paul Tibbets and Maj. Charles Sweeney.
