As everyone knows, modern documentaries are trash. Reduced to mere grout between advert breaks, with the same old stock footage repeated a hundred times, and the same old talking heads repeating conclusions that were debunked in the academic sphere decades ago.

 

This thread is for proper documentaries, from back before millennials killed the documentary industry corporate media ruined everything. A time when (especially immediately post war) some knowledge of military affairs could be expected from the audience, and veterans were still around to give interviews.

 

I'll start with The Silent Service: filmed in the late 50's, retelling true tales of heroism in the submarine branch of the US navy during WW2.

These are definitely a product of their time (the footage of the Japanese sailors is often entertaining for the wrong reasons), but still worth watching
