Victory Through Air Power (1943) -- Animated directed by David Hand and Perce Pearce, H.C. Potter directing the live-action parts. The opening of this movie is traditional of Disney during this period, with a from-the-beginning-to-present comical look at the history of aviation. Then the movie shifts into a serious tone (and live-action introductions by Alexander de Seversky, who wrote the book Victory Through Air Power) which attempts to show American leaders (primarily) how we can win WWII through increased and specific use of air power. Even though it's considered a historical film and served a specific purpose, the movie is itself entertaining, even while being educational.
