Raw Film Footage of the Pathfinders in WWII

I really should update this page more.  Being currently busy with other projects, these raw film reels someone uploaded to YouTube about the 8th Infantry Division in World War II will have to do for now. This is a rare glimpse of one of the lesser-known combat units in the ETO (European Theater)

The first Army Signal Corps film is from D-Day in June 1944. 

The second reel is the liberation of Western Europe in the Summer and Fall of '44.   The 8th Division was not one of the most famous Army fighting units and actual footage of them in action is rare today. I will share anything else I find.

(These and other Signal Corps combat reels are available in DVD format at
