Victory Through Air Power is a 1943 Walt Disney Technicolor animated movie. It is based on the 1942 book Victory Through Air Power by Alexander P. de Seversky. De Seversky is in the movie. This was different from the Disney animated movies of the time.[1]

The movie received an Academy Award nomination for Best Music Score of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture.

On December 8, 1941, Disney studios were changed into a propaganda machine for the United States government. While most World War II movies were made for training, movies such as Victory Through Air Power were made to build public morale among the U.S. and Allied powers.[2] Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt were influenced by the movie.[3]
