GERMAN WARTIME NEWSREELS 10 * with switchable English subtitles * (improved)

Updated and improved as of November 2016, this revised disc includes subtitling which does not extend three lines without being split (despite the older photo above); tighter and cleaner translating; and some video improvements.

Our translations of Die Deutsche Wochenschau newsreels (in addition to any supplments listed in the description below) covering the events, mainly in Europe, from June to July 1941 (with two supplemental films included ... see description) with first hand film reports.  Each part has variable film quality based on the original films it shows.  Overall, we would say the quality would correspond to a range of well worn VHS to very good DVD quality.  There may be some sound or picture issues on parts of the film.
