This documentary supervised by Lt. Col. Frank Capra demonstrates how the diplomatic and political blunders made in the wake of WWI led to WWII. While America sleeps, Japan and Germany slowly and methodically build their armies and launch their plans for global conquest. Throughout this film, the lies of fascism and totalitarianism are contrasted with the ideals of Democracy. This film was shown to both civilian and military audiences.
