Watch WORLD WAR II TRANSPORTATION & TIRES MOVIE HIGHBALLING TO VICTORY 78454
An official film made by the War Department, Highballing to Victory is a short US propaganda movie made toward the end of World War II about the importance of material and transportation in the war effort. The movie includes an emphasis on the story of tires, which proved vital for the war effort. At the 5:50 mark tire “casualties” are seen with tires damaged or destroyed in accidents, from wear, or combat. A B-24 crash is seen at 6:40, and other aircraft making ground loops and crashing.
