Okay, as the people here with a decent memory might remember my earlier youtube account is no more. So in order to put again the preciated videos I had to painfully, slowly and metodically rebuild my channel. Evidently my confidence in Youtube is pretty much destroyed so if possible I would provide an alternative view-online or download link.

My first idea was to re-upload those in the original topics ( Luftwaffe Guncams, Deutsche Woche, ec) but now it not seems quite practical because that would be intermingled with no-working videos, quite confusing.

So I decided simply to open a new topic, in here I will put all the german military related videos, guncams, naval actions,etc. Even we can add some of the home front that might seems relevant and interesting. I had receive tons of private messages in regard of this issue, some asking to upload the entire wochenschau in rapidshare or megaupload. Well, yea, I could do that but is important to know that not all the content of the wartime nazi newsreels are military oriented, some of them are quite inocuos, some onoxious and other really boring. For example manufacture of wooden shoes in Holland in 1941, corn harvest in Ukraine 1942, fashion show in France in 1943, and so. Really donít worth the job/ bandwidth.

Is important to know also that the Deutsche Wochenschaus was not the only wartime weekly produced by the Propaganda Ministry. There were other titles like Europa Woche , Actualites Mondiales ( this last in French) the Descheg Monatschau and so. There was also an ďAuslandĒ variant of the DW named ATW ( aussland tonwoche, sound foreign weekly )in French, Russian, Ukranian, English, norwegian, and finnish. Again not all the content of those might be relevant for the one military interested.

Of course if anybody has time to upload or simple hyperlink related material that would be enormously preciated.

Something to get started, training of panzer Division 1940, some months before the ttack on France.
