My Weekend was spent watching some great docos on History. Here they are neatly packaged in a video with annotation links. For it is important to know history and how it is still applied today. World War II: The Lost Color Archives World War II has been seen as a black and white war… until now! The scenes are authentic. The color is real. www.youtube.com Hitler in Colour This is a series of home movies and other color film showing the period of 1933 to the end of the war in color. The narration is mostly made up of quotes from diaries and speeches from the time. www.youtube.com The Last Secrets of the Axis Fascinating documentary about who was really pulling the strings for the Nazis and the Japanese in the second World War. The secret societies, the black dragons and spies in Pearl harbour www.youtube.com WORLD WAR 2 IN COLOUR This miniseries makes a point of presenting WWII in period color only, as opposed to the wealth of b&w material we have seen www.youtube.com The World At War The most compelling documentary series ever made concerning war. It’s tone offers a stark contrast to the often gung-ho attitude towards World War 2 that the media exhibits. Rather than opting for screaming about the horror of war, it allows Sir Laurence Olivier’s quiet voice to take a back seat to the true images of war www.youtube.com Dealers in Death 1934 Dealers in Death was a mid-1930s documentary designed to forewarn the public that a second World War would mean the end of civilization

As for tactics, tanks are best used in a doctrine with infantry and air support- ie combined arms…….for most effective use………

Design, tactics and vision uber alles! Too bad Brits didn’t adapt Fuller and Hart’s vision or tactics! Only Germans had the vision of the potential and developed it (and interestingly, Patton). As for Design, tanks are necessarily are necessarily a trade-off between speed, armor, firepower, reliability, and ease of production.

Eh the line Quantity rather thn quality is infact correct. The American Sherman tank was inferior to the German Tanks in allmost every way from an egineering perspective. The reason the Sherman prevailed was merely by numbers, loads were made and given to England and even to russia. Yet. The Sherman was an ok tank..but it had some serious flaws, it would burst in the flame after being hit, hence the reason why many soldiers used to give the sherman nicknames like “Tommycooker”

most tankers would agree a tank has to have the best of all of them, or in this case most of them. the T-34 was the best in my opinion because of the relibilty, well designed armor and firepower. its main flaw was its lack of a commander. it was probably the first modern tank.

“Best tank” is a bit a tricky expression…
Sherman and T-34 may have be the best tank if we speak of reliability but I think the Panther was the best if we speak of firepower and mobility And king Tiger, if we speak of firepower and armor.

OH wow there was a very bad line in there if “quantity was better than quality” America would not have the best military in the world right now. The shermans and T-32′s where better in quality because of there better reliability and Easy Repair.

@directorlog watch War of the Century Part 1 on Youtube.

Lots of countries like Rumania, Bulgaria, Italy even many French Dutch & Finnish joined Germany to attack Russia because the Soviets killed 10 million civillians alone 10 years before Hitler took power.

@jokowwenna hitlers risky tactics won him everything up until 1942. he gambled on invading czechoslovakia poland greece and france but lost when he gambled with the US & Russia.

he shouldve been a poker player

@directorlog

hitler was to much of a madman and he should have let his generals do the work and decission instead of himself, which leaded to disaster

and no im no nazi, but i just say how it is^^

Man Hitler made a stupid move to invade Russia – idiot.

why didn’t he keep going over the channel he had England in his hands – am glad he didn’t though.

@calibre9mm You really believe that Hitler was no different than the Americans and the ‘Russkies’? Where do you get your statistics about the 20 million post ww2 Polish, Check, Rumanian, etc. deaths??

This was the 30-ies, the Jews were hated by almost everyone in Europe, so Hitler doesn’t bear any guilt???

You should ask your money back from whoever taught you history!

@TheTruthBurnsTwice I suppose you haven’t seen Forbes recently. Check it out for the richest folks in the US and then their religion (if noted). It may change your figures.

the 1975 book “Hoax of the Twentieth Century” by Northwestern University professor Arthur Butz unmasked how the “holocaust” claims were fabricated to bury Nazism and popularize the military takeover of Germany. The “holocaust” lies were subsequently used to steal Palestine and deflect scrutiny from the many extermination operations carried out by the jew-funded nations such as the Holodomor, Katyn, Bromberg, Danzig, Dresden, Hamburg, Cologne, Royan, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki and the Gulags.

@MaxSpaTemp103 Jewish masters? Churchill was on “the Jewish payroll?” its stupidity like that which caused the holocaust you prick

Churchill blindly obeyed the orders passed down by his jewish masters to firebomb German civilians in 1940. Only after scores of Germans had been massacred did Hitler reciprocate. Nobody could ever see how Churchill was able to afford the sprawling estate where he resided between WW1 and WW2. No doubt that Churchill was on the jewish payroll as their war mongerer number one. Neville Chamberlain stated for the record that the barbarism of Churchill was direct violation of international law.

the real exterminationists of WW2 were the jew-funded nations that killed untold millions of unarmed civilians. Communist jews such as Genrikh Yagoda ruled over the Gulag death camps which killed another 25 million. The jews manufactured bogus claims about German death camps to deflect scrutiny away from their own real death camps such as Zgoda. The fundamental nature of world judaism was unmasked by extermination episodes such as the Holodomor, Danzig, Bromberg and Katyn forest.

Hitler was bad, but Guardian & CBC ranked him as the 3rd greatest mass murderer. Behind the hero Mao & great Stalin. remember Ukraine today still commemorate the loss of 5 million lost in Stalins famines B 4 WWII & the whole East Europe who was oppressed 3 decades after Watch BBCS.
