Japanese WW2 Newsreels

Japanese WW2 newsreels from 1940~45 have been released to the public. You can watch them all on the NHK website. Very interesting stuff, check it out: Newsreels

Takes a little digging but it is worth the effort: camouflaged jungle patrols, beach assault training, infantry vs tank training and much much more. Also rare bits of gear like the special tree climbers used by snipers and spotters can be seen in action.
