Summary: I. "Duce rescued from captivity." Captured German film of the escape of Mussolini and his arrival at the Führer's HQ, where he is met by Hitler, Ribbentrop and his son Bruno.
II. "8th in Ortona, 5th go forward." In spite of Nazi threats to victimise the families of Italians who fight against the Germans, Italian soldiers are seen manning artillery on the 5th Army front. Fate of Italian civil population is suggested by view of woman retrieving her belongings from a ruined house. But rural life continues as before (man with oxen and plough) and Italian soldiers sit smiling and prepared in an Allied truck marked "Rome or Death."
III. "In 1944 your health is the first front." Urges workers to keep up their effort and maintain their health "for almost the only thing that could stop victory this year is a slowdown on the factory floor." Dramatised sequence shows malingering worker suffering from bad conscience as radio relays Harris' request for one last spurt of effort. Factories have their own health clinics which workers are urged to use. Workers must also wear suitable clothing to avoid injury.
