Several war and propeganda films were created by Disney for the US Department of Defense during World War II.
These films played a significant role for the Disney Corporation because it was the true beginning of educational films.

The educational films would be, and still are, continually produced and used for the military, schools, and factory instruction.
The company learned how to effectively communicate their ideas and efficiently produce the films while introducing the
Disney characters to millions of people worldwide.

Throughout the rest of the war, Disney characters effectively acted as ambassadors to the world. In addition to
Victory Through Air Power, Disney produced Donald Gets Drafted, Education for Death, Der Fuherer's Face,
and various training videos for the military.
