German government assaults FREE SPEECH world wide!
There is an air of urgency to your historical war movie collections. The German government in a classic Orwellian 1984 memory hole move is trying to stop the distribution of Third Reich films worldwide including the USA under the Uruguay Round Table agreements. This is a quote from one of their anti-American documents "...the responsible handling of nazi film heritage is very important. This is why we only make available such national socialist propaganda films to non-commercial sector and only under certain circumstances and conditions." We do not know how long into the future these nazi films, German newsreels, Third Reich propaganda films, and Hitler movies will be available for sale! It is for this reason that we strongly urge everyone to add to their historical nazi movie and nazi film collections ASAP before this FREEDOM OF SPEECH is taken away!

The epoch brought back to life by real-life images from these period-newsreels was pivotal in the course of World War Two. January to April 1941 witnessed the introduction of the Deutsche Afrika Korps and Germany’s conquest of the Balkans. Both historic events are visually chronicled in Volume 4 of “Through Enemy Eyes”, first with the departure of Wehrmacht forces from Italian ports.
We see Bersaglieri troops wearing their distinctive plumed helmets help load crates of ammunition aboard Ju.52 cargo-planes. There are some superb close-ups of the Junkers tri-motors on the ground and flying low over the Mediterranean Sea. They pass over an Italian convoy escorted by a trim destroyer from the Regia Marina. In Libya, the Ju.52s land to disgorge their supplies and men into long truck columns through the trackless desert.
They join up with fresh German armor, affording us detailed perspectives of the famous Kubelwagen and Panzer IV Ausf. D tank. The men are shown putting on their Afrika Korps uniforms for the first time. They fall in for mail call, and two are married to brides back in the Reich via a proxy ceremony in the desert. Motorcyclists halt at a signpost indicating, “Berlin 3,553 kilometers”. Perhaps the greatest fieldpiece in military history, the 88-mm Flak, is shown to good advantage, blasting away at distant targets near British-held Agheila. Even before the artillery barrage is complete, DAF armor, including 16-wheeled armored cars, roll toward the targeted town. Rommel appears for the first time at the head of his troops, as always, as the camera pans to some spectactuarly demolished enemy vehicles. Agheila falls, yielding the first few thousand English prisoners. Most are smiling, apparently glad the worst is over. An early Afrika Korps’ song, “Heija, Safari”, accompanies the German troops while they race to the capture of Bengasi and the vital harbor at Cyrenaica.
RAF aircraft counter-attack, but 88s shoot them down. A gently descending parachute shows that the pilot escaped his Beaufort medium-bomber, its flaming wreckage strewn across the desert. The haul of prisoners swells, as Rommel takes Sollum. Great footage of his Fieseler Storch liason plane.
Back in Europe, Reichsminister Dr. Goebbels announces the Wehrmacht invasion of the Balkans. A pre-dawn barrage is beautifully photographed, with tracers bouncing all around Yugoslav bunkers. The few that survive this onslaught are burst open by Stuka dive-bombers dropping their thousand pounds of ordinance with pin-point accuracy. These are some of the best Ju-87 images ever taken, as the “Stormtooper of the Skies” climbs over high mountains through broken clouds. They are joined by Italian tri-motors, the magnificent SM-79 Spaviero, and lesser known, but more graceful CANT bombers. For aviation historians, close-ups of these rarely seen aircraft will be especially enlightening.
On the ground, German infantry ford swiftly flowing rivers choked with the debris of huge bridges blown up by retreating Serbs. On the opposite bank, close-quarter shelling pounds the enemy, as troops hurl handgrenades and SS units invest Belgrade.
Bosnia falls to the all-conquering invaders, while Italian mortar battalions pummel the Greeks’ Metaxas Line of powerful fortifications. Gun-cameras mounted aboard Messerschmitt-110s reecord the obliteration of the Yugoslav AirForce on the ground in perhaps the most exciting scenes of the Campaign. A long trail of smahed, over-turned armor is left by the British in their headlong flight toward the Aegean Sea, where Stuka reappear to blast retreating ships.
German troops pass beneath the summit of Mount Olympus, home of the Greek gods who this time withheld their favor from the Allies. Elite warriors of the Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler march into Athens, where their leader, Sepp Dietrich, accepts the English surrender.
While the North African and Balkan campaigns dominate Volume 4, both its discs feature a great deal of other materials worth seeing again and again. Foremost among these are the earliest Luftwaffe raids on Malta, where the aircraft-carrier HMS Illustrious is severely hit; the former world champion boxer, Max Schmelling, goes through parachute training; a Kriegsmarine auxilliary cruiser in tropical waters sinks and captures enemy shipping; and the Fuehrer celebrates Heroes Memorial Day in Berlin with solemn ceremonies and an impressive march-past of flags from all the armed services.
Viewers of Volume 4 will find on either of its discs more than two hours of fast-paced World War Two action and contemporary imagery that preserves forever the atmosphere and tempo of the Third Reich.
Reviewer’s note: While purchasing all fourteen volumes of “Through Enemy Eyes” may be too sizeable an investment for most students of World War Two, they will find nowhere else --- in either the written or spoken word --- original source material that will provide them with a broader, more profound understanding of and appreciation for that seminal conflict. To watch it every day, from first to last newsreel, is a life-changing experience, comparable to seeing and hearing Wagner’s Ring Cycle.
Whatever viewers bring with them to this collection will be expanded a thousandfold. In short, the “Through Enemy Eyes” series is by far the most important, single document to have emerged from the Second World War, bar none.

The weekly German newsreels were how the government informed the German public of events that they deemed worthy of national interest. These included a vast array of topics both at the distant fronts but in the homeland as well. Topics include munitions production, agriculture, culture, arts, home economics, sports, politics etc. By studying these newsreels you will see what life was really like in the Third Reich both for the German civilian and the combat soldier. The cameramen were actual German frontline soldiers so they were in the thick of combat. See their war under water in the air and on the ground. Meet the heroes of the German war machine as they fight against great odds from the Atlantic Ocean to the Steppes of Russia. This is why German newsreels are much more interesting and exciting than any other participants of the war. Often these cameramen were killed filming and this was noted in the film credits. American and British newsreels are usually filmed from a great distance so are without as much detail or action and Soviet newsreels are of very poor film quality and often reenacted and look very fake. Each authentic German newsreel comes with the original German sound track and English Subtitles so there is no nasty narration! You can purchase each DVD individually or SAVE big money and get the whole set!
