A Newsreel History of the Third Reich, Vol. 15
Don't be misled by the title: the Newsreel History of the Third Reich series does not construct a factual history of the rise and fall of Hitler's Reich from newsreel footage screened for the Allies, but deliberately presents an 89-minute assemblage of distorted and fallacious, propagandistic newsreel clips shot by the Nazis for German audiences during World War II. The preponderance of footage at hand was seized from the S.S. by the Russians, and it provides a window into how WWII-era Germans perceived the events of the war, and how Hitler's government "spun" those events to them. Volume 15 covers the last four months of 1943, depicting such events as Japanese ambassador General Oshima's meeting with Hitler at the Fuhrer's headquarters; the naval patrols in the channel on the Western Front; the bombardment of Leningrad; submarine patrols in the Atlantic; and much more. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
