(5/5) Timewatch Battle for Warsaw World War II

World War II Second World War Videos Battle of Warsaw Warsaw uprising (1944), tragic attempt by the Polish Home Army (Armija Krajowa) to overthrow the German occupation as the Red Army closed on Warsaw. By 28 July 1944 citizens of Warsaw could hear the sounds of the battle between the Wehrmacht and the Red Army. The Soviets were concerned about a German counter-attack and ordered their troops onto the defensive on 1 August. The Home Army was sponsored by the British and the Polish government in exile in London, but the British turned down requests for active assistance from RAF aircraft and the Polish Parachute Brigade because Warsaw was beyond normal aircraft range and lay within the Soviet sphere. The USSR had its own plans and government-in-waiting, Rada Narodowa, and sponsored a different Polish army, the Armija Ludowa, which was unified with the Polish army that had been formed in the USSR. Nonetheless, the charge that the Soviets sat back and waited for the Germans to crush the uprising is baseless; there were four German armored divisions between them and the city and Marshal Rokossovsky, commanding the Soviet First Belorussian Front (army group), needed to regroup before continuing the offensive. The lamentable fact is that the uprising was intended to present the advancing Soviets with a fait accompli and was launched without prior consultation with either London or Moscow.

Japanese Internment Camps During WWII – Movie

A collection of audio and visual clips during WWII and the Japanese Internment Camps. I made this just for fun for one of my classes. These clips range from random video clips, propaganda, and old documentaries of the time during the Japanese Internment Camps. A good collection could be found at archive.org. Note: These films do not show the entire picture of Japanese Internment Camps, nor does it capture the despair and turmoil of the Japanese people. Since some of these clips were taken from propaganda films, notice the word choice from narrator and even music. Also note that some films were mixed with other narrator voices that better described the situation.
