DESCRIPTION: This DVD complies war-time footage shot by German cameramen for propaganda newsreels. It features translated Wochenschau newsreels and puts a distinctly Nazi spin on the events recorded. Casualties amongst the cameramen was high. It is primary source material.

The German Propaganda Kompanien (PK) captured the events of Hitler’s war on every front. Their footage was used to produce Die Deutsche Wochenschau, a weekly cinema newsreel detailing the events of World War II on land, sea and air.

For the first time these unique primary source films have been collated, edited and translated into English in order to produce a complete military history of the Third Reich drawn exclusively from German primary sources. This amazing range of films captures the events of World War II exactly as they were presented to contemporary cinema audiences while the actions on the battlefield were still unfolding.

This volume featuring translated Wochenschau newsreels dating from 1941 records the battles on the Finnish Front. Historians have treated this theatre as a side show but the spirited Finnish defence against huge Red Army forces continued to occupy Soviet resources that could have been better placed in the drive towards Berlin.
