(7/11) Battlefield II The Battle for Caen World War II – Movie

World War II Videos The defeat of the German forces at the Falaise Gap in August 1944 was the culmination of an effort that had begun the previous June, when British, US and Canadian troops stormed the Normandy beaches during Operation Overlord. Then followed the bloody fighting for the all-important city of Caen. The Falaise Gap was an area between Argentan and Falaise, southeast of Caen. For the Germans, it represented an escape route from the advancing Allied troops, who threatened to trap the 7th Army, 5th Panzer Army and Panzergruppe Eberbach. The Canadian 1st and British 2nd Armies had finally broken out from Caen after weeks of hard and bitter fighting which had stalled the entire Normandy invasion. At the same time, the US 1st and 3rd Armies had forced their way off the Normandy beaches and were rapidly heading towards Falaise from the north and the east. The fighting in the lanes and fields was intense, as the Allies battled hard to overcome determined resistance by some 80000 German troops. With so many men and weapons on the ground, it is not surprising they were eventually undone by fierce artillery fire from three sides and by constant attacks from the air. The Gap was closed on 19th August, leaving only a small pocket of German resistance that was overrun on 21st August. The German losses were catastrophic 10000 killed, 50000 taken prisoner, nearly 600 tanks and assault guns destroyed, and 7500 vehicles lost. Featuring fascinating archive footage from all

World War II SUBSCRIBE TO EXCELLENT WORLD WAR II VIDEOS Tarawa is an atoll located approximately 2500 miles southwest of Hawaii. It consists of a series of coral islets that stretch through the ocean in a hook-like fashion. The military importance of Tarawa lay in its strategic location at the gateway of the US drive through the central Pacific towards the Philippines. The largest of Tarawa’s islets is Betio measuring less than 3 miles in length and 1/2 mile in width. Here, the Japanese built an airstrip defended by 4700 troops dug into a labyrinth of pillboxes and bunkers interconnected by tunnels and defended by wire and mines. The task of dislodging this force fell to the Marines of the 2nd Division. The resulting struggle produced one of the fiercest and bloodiest battles in Marine Corps. History The landings began on November 20 and immediately ran into trouble. Coming in at low tide, the assault boats were forced to disgorge their men far from shore. Wading through waist-deep water over piercing, razor-sharp coral, many were cut down by merciless enemy gunfire yards from the beach. Those who made it ashore huddled in the sand, hemmed in by the sea to one side and the Japanese to the other. The next morning, reinforcements made the same perilous journey bringing with them tanks and artillery. By the end of the day the Marines were able to break out from the beach to the inland. The fierce combat continued for another two days. The cost of victory was high for the

(05) “Report from the Aleutians” (ca. 1943) 5 of 5 – Movie

SUBSCRIBE TO EXCELLENT WAR AND POST-WAR WORLD WAR II MOVIES UPDATED WEEKLY “Report from the Aleutians” is a documentary propaganda film produced by the US Army Signal Corps about the Aleutian Islands Campaign during World War II. It was directed and narrated by John Huston. In contrast to the other Technicolor films made in the Pacific war, Report from the Aleutians has relatively little combat footage, and instead concentrates on the daily lives of the servicemen on Adak Island, as they live and work there while flying missions over nearby Kiska. The film opens with a map showing the strategic importance of the island, and the thrust of the 1942 Japanese offensive into Midway and Dutch Harbor. Photographs of the pilots who beat the Japanese back at Dutch Harbor are passed before the camera. “There is no monument to these men. If you want to see their monument, look around you.” The American forces dug in at Adak Island, and there commenced daily bombing missions over the Japanese who had taken Kiska. The film focuses on their routine activities such as harbor patrols, messes, news boards and mail call. “Ask any pilot. He’d tell you he’d gladly fly an extra trip over Kiska to get just one letter.” One pilot’s crash landing is shown, and his funeral is filmed. The last twenty minutes or so of the film is taken from footage taken over a mission over Japanese positions. The monotony of the one hour trip there is emphasized, noting that some have taken up “mental solitaire

Sprung in den Feind (Invasion of the Netherlands in 1940) – Video

Downloadble version: rapidshare.com Visit: worldwar2propaganda.info for more World War II movies and music. Will only work with Quicktime and VLC Mediaplayer!! Other version comming soon. This is a German propaganda movie made in 1942. It shows the invasion of the Netherlands, how the Netherlands was a threat to the Ruhrgebied in Germany. The Netherlands could be used by the English to take the Ruhrgebied… The job of the Fallschirmjägers here was to take the bridge of Moerdijk, and so the Panzers could roll into Vesting Holland (fort Holland). This material is never shown before anywhere, except on the Dutch television once. It has Dutch subtitles, but these where not added by me.
