Summary Produced by the legendary filmmaker Frank Capra, this Armed Forces Information Film is a fascinating and authentic overview of the bloody and dramatic Japan-US conflict in the Pacific Theater in 1944. Featuring animation from Walt Disney Studios, "Attack in the Pacific" guides the viewer from Guadalcanal through Midway to Iwo Jima (the devastating Battle of Okinawa was yet to come) through deftly edited archival footage featuring the likes of Winston Churchill, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Chiang Kai-shek.
