Through Enemy Eyes: A Newsreel History Of The Third Reich At War, Volume 5

DVD Review by Blaine Taylor


9 German Newsreels with English Subtitles May 7, 1941-Aug. 6, 1941

In this spectacular collection of wartime combat images, we see the Afrika Korps drive on Tobruk, Thermopylae in Greece taken by the German Army, the fall of Athens, tank battles in Cyrenaica, paratroops dropping onto the Greek Island of Crete, its port of Kanea captured, and the epic German invasion of the Soviet Union on June 22, 1941.

We also see the arrival of German troops in Finland, the capture of Kaunas, two Soviet armies encircled at Bialystok, and the fall of the Red Army citadel of Brest-Litovsk.

In addition, the viewer sees Bavarian mountain troops taking Lemberg (Lvov), Soviet atrocities in Lemberg, heavy fighting in Lithuainia, street combat in Libau, and Kiev.

There is also the surrender of 325,000 Red Army troops in the Bialystok-Minsk region, Riga falling, and the German Army advancing on Leningrad, the USSR's second city, plus German Navy destroyers attacking Soviet patrol boats near Murmansk.

Hitler visits the Eastern Front, Vinnitsa and Mogilev fall to German and Hungarian troops, after heavy street fighting Smolensk falls, and the Waffen/Armed SS fight northeast of Lake Peipus.
