This documentary is a part of a film series with the purpose of encouraging and convincing American soldiers to participate and maximize their efforts in the battle against the Axis Powers in the course of World War II. The name of the series is ‘Why We Fight’ and it represents the directorial debut of Frank Capra. These documentaries were issued by the Office of War Information or OWI in collaboration with George C. Marshall.

Before the public release an edit was added to the film in a form of a comment by Henry L. Stimson, who was the Secretary of War, where he states that “the purpose of these films is to give factual information as to the causes, the events leading up to our entry into the war and the principles for which we are fighting”.

This documentary opens with an explanation of how Americans were initially involved into the war through a heroic intent to protect the countries that are unable to do so themselves. America had this moral duty towards the way of righteousness and religious values throughout history in accordance to the same values and beliefs of the founding fathers.
