PENTAGON HOME MOVIES is a weekly series looking at the US military thru the eyes of a century of films produced by the defense department. Propaganda, military training and surviving atomic attacks are just a few of the topics explored.

Many of these films were 'restricted' and not allowed to be shown to non-military audiences. Others have been restricted due to content to all audiences after production.
