Why We Fight is a series of seven documentary films commissioned by the United States government during World War II whose purpose was to show American soldiers the reason for U.S. involvement in the war. Later on they were also shown to the general U.S. public to persuade them to support American involvement in the war.Most of the films were directed by Frank Capra, who was daunted yet also impressed and challenged by Leni Riefenstahl’s propaganda film Triumph of the Will and who worked in direct response to it.
