A Newsreel History of the Third Reich: Vol. 17

2008 NR

These Nazi newsreels recovered by Russian troops in 1945 give a unique glimpse into World War II, revealing the propaganda just as the German population saw it in early 1944, including clips of Berlin preparing for Allied bombing raids. Other bits include fascinating shots of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel inspecting troops and fortifications along the coast of Normandy not long before the Allied D-Day invasion.
