    Various, United States of America (USA).

    Rhode Island. Close up shot of a sign "Commando Course, Camp Endicott" - Rhode Island. Various shots of American Rangers being put through a tough Commando assault course.

    Virginia. Various shots at a Virginia army school where they are shown how to deal with tanks by making tank traps. Some tanks come along and the traps are very effective.

    Michigan. Various shots of soldiers trying out the amphibious jeep somewhere in Michigan. Jeep is demonstrated on the land and in the water.

    Florida. Various shots of soldiers on landing craft moving towards the Florida coast during invasion manoeuvres. They hit the sandy beaches and run ashore. Authentic looking material - quite interesting. Troops move through a small village. All the time they are under fire - explosions all around.
