The DVD opens with a 7-minute cartoon from the time for your entertainment. In English;
WWII Germany in Color - Part II (1937-40): In the follow up to our other DVD, WWII Germany in Color, this 46 minute film shows what life in Hitler's Germany was like right before the outbreak of War up until the conquest of France. Color films, discovered by US forces only after War's end, make up the bulk of this collection of both home movies, movies shot by troops at the front with 8mm, compact cameras, and official productions. Quality varies by just who was shooting what, but they're all interesting, nonetheless. Narration in English;
Russian against Finn: 56 minute color film documents a subject rarely covered in the United States: the Russo-Finnish War of 1939-40. While not immediately about Germany, per se, the Soviets' poor performance in the Winter War led Hitler to call for the plans to invade Russia the following year, and thus had tremendous influence on the history of Europe and the world as a whole. This film documents not only the events of that fateful winter, but has wonderful re-enactment by Finns and Russians. Very interesting. Excellent quality. Mostly in English, but there is some Finnish and Russian with English subtitles;
The DVD concludes with another 8 minute cartoon.
