The eighth feature length Disney animated film was the bizarre Victory Through Air Power. More of a propaganda film than a traditional animated feature, the film began life after Walt Disney read the book of the same name. The film describes how aircraft could be used to end World War II quickly. Walt so believed in the message that he decided to produce the film to try and influence others of the soundness of his thinking. The film was not profitable, but then not much of the studio's World War II product was.
