See our own soldiers in action …the country in which they are fighting… the people with whom they are coming in contact… see all the places about which you are reading in the headlines. These up-to-the-minute pictures taken by war department photographers are added to Ava Hamilton's own beautiful color film, the Dawn of Victory, which expresses the mystery and exotic charm of French North Africa, where medieval culture is still unspoiled. The film also shows beautiful scenes of the desert, picturesque oases, wild tribesmen and the difficult route across the Sahara traversed by the Free Fighting French under General de Gaulle.
