Critic Reviews


This short documentary describes the landings and occupation of Rendova, a lightly defended island just to the north of Guadalcanal. The Army had little trouble except from snipers. "Like all savage animals the Japs took to the trees." The object was to establish a base from which the nearby stronghold of Munda could be shelled. The goal was accomplished but of course the Japanese retaliated with bombing raids. The raid destroyed supplies, vehicles, and guns.

But it was a surprise to see, in a documentary from the war years, shots of American soldiers who had been killed in the air raid, some of the bodies half buried in mud and already in rigor. I wouldn't have thought the censors would allow it.

The narration is telegraphic in style. "Supplies. Hard work. Necessary." It wasn't a large scale or glamorous operation. It wasn't of great strategic importance like Midway or Guadalcanal, only an incremental step towards the Japanese homeland. The mission of taking Munda was accomplished but the occupation is rarely celebrated.
