Summary
  • March of time. Lieutenant General Joseph Stilwell's troops are building the Ledo Road in the Mogaung Valley in northern Burma as a military supply route to meet up with the old Burma Road. This will help supply the forces of Chiang Kai-shek in the war with Japan. Lieutenant Colonel George H. Taylor, of the War Plans Division, Office of the Chief of Engineers, tells how the road is built, how they continued even under attack by the Japanese, and how they befriended the Nagas. (from Washington, D. C.). Representative Robert L. Doughton (North Carolina), of the House Ways and Means Committee, explains "tax simplification" (from Washington, D. C.). From "Dream With Music," the show features two new tunes, "Love At Second Sight" (adapted from Edvard Grieg's Piano Concerto) and "I'm Afraid I'm In Love (adapted from Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade)." Ernie Pyle has won a Pulitzer Prize. The story of the Flying Fortress "Thunderbird" during the battle for Tunisia (written by Ernie Pyle) is dramatized. [Recording ends]
