Summary The Pentomic Division, so named because it consists of five battle groups, is a semi-independent, self-contained fighting unit designed to operate effectively on an atomic battleground should the need ever arise. This classic episode of the U.S. Army's The Big Picture series explores today's Pentomic Division, characterized by the ability of fewer men to deliver a more devastating concentration of firepower on any would-be aggressor. The footage in this fascinating video has been provided by the National Archives and Records Administration.
