  • Desert Victory

    1943. Great Britain. Directed by Roy Boulting. Commentary by J. L. Hodson. Strategically produced to highlight a sorely needed British military victory over the Nazis (the Battle of El Alamein), Desert Victory also represents a critical accomplishment for the British Ministry of Information. The Nazi army had proven masterful in their use of documentary film as a weapon of war; use of battlefield photography by the British, as seen here, helped to balance the propaganda equation. New print made by Imperial War Museum. 62 min.
