DESCRIPTION: This series does stray a little outside its apparent brief. In this DVD there is coverage of German heavy weapons. All nations of the time with coastline to defend set up concrete bunkers and forts, armed with heavy artillery, often guns built originally for warships and held in store when the ships decommissioned. Germany was no exception and the Atlantic Wall ran down from the Artic to the Spanish border. These guns included some monsters that could send their shells across to the English Kent Coast. On the Eastern front, siege guns were deployed, but the great distances and the rapid advances and retreats made the railroad gun particularly important and featured the armoured train that included heavy weapons, ammunition and its own air defence artillery. The DVD centres on two films. Film 1 concentrates on the very heavy artillery employed against Sewastopol. Film 2 covers the Wehrmacht on several fronts and together the film provide film footage not seen since the war when it was used for propaganda and training. An interesting DVD that will be a much valued addition to any DVD war film collection.
