Your Job In Germany

An interesting film to be shown to Army troops serving in occupied Germany in 1945.  The film was made by Frank Capra’s film unit in the Army Signal Corps and written by Theodor Geisel, in his pre-Dr. Seuss days.  It is a reminder of just how daunting a task it was to manage the occupation without creating animosities that would lead to a future war, or without having such a light occupation that the Germans would be tempted to roll the iron dice of war a third time.  A reminder to the troops that though the war was over and won, winning the peace was still very much up in the air.
