World World War 2 Through Axis Eyes
Captured German Newsreels
All on one DVD!
German combat cameramen were celebrities for a good reason. This is a treasure trove of
World War 2 newsreels that were shown in Germany, occupied counties and
countries friendly to the Axis powers.Supplementary text in
English has been added, but the pictures tell the story here.Of course, some of
these films have an obvious propaganda slant: Nazi leaders are idolized and
retreats are portrayed as victories. But they are also a unique and very
dramatic collection of seldom seen World War 2 combat footage, often in very
good to excellent condition, that shows events as they happened. (We have digitally restored the video &
audio sound tracks. See a sample gallery of images here.)
watch the cable history channels, but most of this footage is
completely new to me or I have only seen snippets from longer scenes that are shown here in their entirety. From a
raucous ready room at a Luftwaffe night fighter base to tank battles on the frozen
steppes of Russia, this is a tremendous collection of World War 2 combat and historical footage, as seen from 'the other side'" Zeno
