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 features translated Wochenschau newsreels dating from 1941 into early 1942 and records the military events in the western desert from the arrival of the Afrika Korps through to the high water mark, which saw Rommel’s forces poised on the brink of victory.
