During WWII, the US government launched a huge propaganda campaign using cinema as their most powerful weapon. This is the story of four European-born Hollywood directors, three who were Jewish, who returned to the "Old World" to make propaganda documentaries for the US Army. They risked their lives for their new homeland and returned to the USA with unique documentaries. Long-forgotten, their films dealt with the front line in Italy, bombardment of Germany and the liberation of Dachau.
