Amazon Prime - World War II Through German eyes TV Series

Post by dadlamassu »

I have found these films as a treasure trove of films of German WW2 equipment. They are the Propaganda Ministry information films and show qlmost every branch of the Wehrmacht though, naturally, they cover the Heer on the Eastern Front showing all sorts of weaponry, equipment, terrain. The Luftwaffe and the other Axis nations get frequent mentions (I am only up to 1942 in the series).

So if you have the time to spare or are interested in the "Ostfront" have a look for lots of equipment, uniform and some (Wagnerian) background music. There is a lot about the infantry and artillery as well as the panzers! So far very few references to Waffen SS. But I'm not even half way through!

Ooooh...

This is crying out for a 'both sides of the line' viewpoint, but we work with what we have
