The Nuclear Vault Channel – Vintage Military Films

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Here, since I’ve been speaking of the importance of archival materials in my previous post, is an amazing site from the Nuclear Vault, which at this moment has 1,098 different videos, including vintage military films, civil defense films, and other official government projects from the 1940s through the 1980s. More are added every day. If you’d like to find the true history of this period, from the official government perspective, this is the place to start.

Just click on the image above, and then on any one of the numerous thumbnails to get started.
