German Battle Units DVD (DVD)
Using original German film footage, 'German Battle Units' follows the Wehrmacht as they push eastwards towards Moscow. The troops had to cope with an enormous and difficult workload - trenches had to be dug, mines had to be set or diffused, new bridges had to be built, and huge quantities of supplies had to be transported to the front. The fast advance, on dirt roads and through boggy terrain, tested the the soldiers' marching skills and perseverance.
This collection of eye witness footage is fascinating viewing for those interested in the German Army on the Russian Front.
