11. NFB — Road to Tokyo — 18 min

Canada's place in the strategy of Pacific warfare is the subject of this wartime film. Convoys, carrying the sinews of war, steam out from her ports, while along her western coast lookouts and patrol boats keep constant vigil. The close cooperation between the United States and Canada in the Pacific is illustrated by scenes of the construction of the Alaska Highway along which thousands of men in training behind coastal defenses may take the road to Tokyo.
