WWII Drama, based on fact (1942-45)

Lon ClarkA series of fifteen-minute shows that were created in New York, and transcribed for syndication by World Broadcasting System. The United Press used this show to feature their reporters, and sustained the show, first on WO in New York City, as a prestige/public service presentation.

The United Press had War Correspondents in nearly all the theaters of action throughout the War, and these shows are dramatic capsules of their "on-the-scene" eye witness accounts. Veteran New York actors such as narrator Lon Clark (Nick Carter) and actor Jackson Beck (Cisco Kid, Hop Harrigan) create vivid action-based narratives. Some of the events covered are: in Tokyo when the Japanese attack Pearl Harbor, Marines hit the beach at Guadalcanal, actions against Rommell and at Oran in North Africa, American and Canadian forces at Kiska in the Aleutians, Soldiers in the Field with Radio ...Doolittle's bombing raid on Tokyo, the fall of Bataan. Many lesser events are covered, as well as historic actions. Correspondents report from behind enemy lines in Japan, New Guinea, China, Germany and Italy. Most of these United Press war correspondents, such as Eleanor Packard, Frank Hewlett and are not well remembered. Some, like Walter Cronkite, Harrison Salisbury and Charles Arnot went on to greater recognition. Each and every war correspondent featured here deserves a place in history for their dedication, bravery and willingness to "bring home the story." In these productions, our fighting forces are remembered as the individuals they were, and that is a great service to history as well.

Any American who would like to know more about World War II, and experience episodes from it firsthand, presented on radio at that time and reenacted with detail and patriotism, should get this collection. One only can fault these shows for being so short…in this case, only fifteen minutes. But each one is a treasure, and radio brought them to the American public during the War Years. Luckily, we still have them!
