Troop train 1943


Troop Train was a 1943 short propaganda film produced by the Office of War Information.

Contents

While the film's assumed purpose would be to educate the American public about the role of railroad transportation of military divisions, Troop Train takes a more stylistic approach, with absolutely no narration and little dialogue. The director uses images to tell the story. Footage of rows of war material, troops marching and locomotives are cleverly edited to create a montage propaganda film, something of a rarity in the United States.

The film is also notable for its depiction of service men's life on the long trips across the country to unknown ports, and to unknown fronts in the war.
