The Great Louisiana Maneuvers of 1941: The Winnfield Story

The United States prepared for World War II by organizing military maneuvers from the Carolinas to Texas. But the "Big One" the granddaddy of all US Army Maneuvers, happened in Louisiana where red hills, cutovers, and swamps even got General Patton's attention. He said, "If you can take these tanks through Louisiana, you can take them through hell." In this documentary some of the state's very best storytellers take us back to that summer of 1941 when over 400,000 soldiers came to Louisiana.
