Editorial Reviews

This series includes unique footage plundered by Russian troops in 1945. Compiled as it is from German newsreels which were made under the influence of Goebbels' Ministry of Propaganda. This volume deals with the 4th part of 1941. It covers events on all of the German fronts including: Home Front - Hitler speaking in Berlin, Christmas in a military hospital; Western Front - Luftwaffe dog fights over the English Channel; and Eastern Front - the continuing bombardment of Leningrad.

Vol. 8, 1941, Part 4. This takes us to late October 1941 in front of Moscow.

You will see the mighty Wehrmacht at its most powerful in this program. I do not think they were ever again at this level of supply or morale.

Here are scenes of everyday soldier and airmen life, filmed by German cameramen. You will not see this anywhere else.

Scenes of U-boat activity include one that would later be dramatized in the 1981 film Das Boot. This is the one in the engine room where the crew don gas masks to fix a broken valve, during an attack on a merchant ship.

The previous program, Vol. 7, had several such scenes, showing up in Das Boot. We see the Luftwaffe in action at French bases: Several British Hurricanes and Spitfires are shot down by Me 109s. Next, North Africa. Five more Hawker Hurricanes are shot down by Me109s. We see Col. (later Lieutenant General) Galland (shown incorrectly on subtitles as Gallant). He was a LtCol in the previous program. The action in the USSR is shown at Kiev, Kharkov, in the South, and around Leningrad.

We see many happy German troops advancing. The soldiers mortars look like our 60 mm and 81 mm mortars that I saw in the Marines in the early 1970s. I was an ordnance officer and I think we copied the German ones.

Hundreds of horses are shown in convoys and in artillery units. In some scenes, motorized transport shares the road with horse-drawn wagons or guns. You will see many 88mm AA guns in action. The PzKwIV short barrel 75 mm tank is shown over and over. No mention is made that its rounds bounced off the T-34.

The music is better in this episode than in the others; we have Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries, and no more band marches.
