Summer 1944-Nazi propaganda newsreel excerpt. Original soundtrack. No subtitles.
Editing by ROMANO-ARCHIVES.
(I posted on YouTube this complete film in two parts on 07-11-2007. First part of this movie, after over 120 views, has been removed by YouTube for alleged "content inappropriate" on 11-13-2007, without any communication. Second part, hard to believe, is actually still on line; I changed the title in "Summer 1944-Nazi Propaganda Newsreel Excerpt".
I won't upload first part of this 1944 newsreel again on YouTube, only because I don't want to start a fight with them about their CENSORSHIP that I really don't understand. Today I uploaded the censored clip on video.google. Here is the link.
This excerpt (second part) shows Kossacks Russian cavalry troops allied with the Nazi army (Kossacks, that were fighting followed by their women, as a reward for their bravery on the battlefields were given by the Nazis in 1944 a kind of "promised land" where they could live after the war. Many of them were given farms and lands in the Carnia. That is in Friuli, in the mountain region of east northern Italy. At the end of the war a great number of these Cossacks families were killed by Italian Partisans.). Film also shows the repairing of a damaged tank, the outstanding Schnell-Boots of the Kriegsmarine and the training of elite paratroopers, the famed "Green Devils".
