This series includes unique footage plundered by Russian troops in 1945. This volume deals with the second part of 1943, covering events on all the German fronts including: Eastern Fron - Stuka attacks and shelling of the docks of Leningrad; Hope Front - air traffic control center for the Rhine area, heavy bombing over Krefeld and the aftermath; Atlantic Front - U-boat packs hunting and attacking allied merchant shipping and submarines; Mediterranean Front - partisan fighting in Montenegro.
In lieu of presenting a factual and unbiased portrait of Nazi Germany during World War II, the A NEWSREEL HISTORY OF THE THIRD REICH series actually consists of distorted propaganda footage, shot and edited by the Nazis in such a way that it was intended to give German citizens a more glowing picture of the Reich's progress and development in the Second World War. The footage was collected by the Russians in 1945 and now appears, edited together, in this unique series. This 14th volume covers such events as Montenegro-centered partisan fighting, the Stuka attacks and artillery fire on the Leningrad docks, the bombing of Krefeld, the U-boats' pursuit of merchant allied vessels and British subs, and much more.
