Project #84612 - Makin Island

Watch the movie Gung Ho!: The Story of Carlson's Makin Island Raiders (available at the link below), a 1943 film based on actual events. After viewing the film, (approximately 1 ½ hours) research details of the actual operation [Makin Island Raid in August 1942].

You will then write a 4 page paper, divided into two halves:

  1. In the first two pages of the research paper, describe how accurate the film was to the actual events of the raid and/or PTO operations in general. How much of it was “Hollywood,” and to what extent did it glorify warfare?
  2. The additional two pages are an opinion paper. Why do you believe the film was released less than a year and a half after the operation? What benefit did this film have on the American war effort, and on American morale?

Please note that a different grading rubric is being applied to this assignment that includes historic interpretation.
