PEN & SWORD: THE FALL OF FRANCE MAY-JUNE 1940 DVD
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 May and June 1940 and records the military events of the blitzkrieg campaign leading to the fall of France.
