Main Front Lines on the Eastern Front DVD (DVD)
The German Wehrmacht
The German Wehrmacht was the name given to the unified armed forces of Germany during the Second World War from 1939 to 1945. The Wehrmacht consisted of the Heer (Army), the Kriegsmarine (Navy) and the Luftwaffe (Air Force). Forming part of a three part series, this DVD, entitled Main Frontlines on the Eastern Front, documents the operations carried out by the Armoured Forces, tanks and infantry units.
The German Front stretched from the far North of Europe to North Africa and from the French Atlantic coast deep into the Caucasus. In addition to the German attacks against the Stalin Line, other fascinating actions are also shown.
Using a selection of rare and unseen archive footage, this DVD explores numerous areas of the German Wehrmacht, from the origins of the Wehrmacht and the Eastern Campaign to the Attack on the Stalin Line and Maritime Distress and Transport Squadrons of the Luftwaffe, making this essential viewing for all Second World War enthusiasts.
Another briliiant collection of official German archive material on DVD - this series is going to prove difficult to beat for research purposes, and anyone studying World War II and German involvement would be well-advised to start with this material. If proof were needed of the determination of the German high command to secure victory through technical means, then this is it. This and the two DVDs that follow are exemplary in providing valuable insight into the German fighting machine that very nearly conquered the world during that long conflict.Books Monthly - May 2011
