German Newsreel July 1940 Touching on the Victory in France. (16:40 Min)

Published: 2021-01-12

In this historic 16 minute video (in German with English subtitles), the German Weekly News of July 1940 is shown. It shows reports from the front by "propaganda companies". German troops, (walking) infantry, cavalry and horse drawn supply carts are shown moving up to the front, thereby disproving the Allied myth that German units were all armoured, mechanized or motorised. The huge amount of war equipment captured at Dunkirk is partially shown. Later, the French people hear the terms of the armistic relayed to them by loudpeakers. Hitler, with his architect, Speer, is shown making a surprise visit to Paris, taking in many of the important places there. Hitler then returns to Berlin, where he is greeted by jubliant crowds. Bombing raids by the RAF and U-boats in action in the Atlantic are also featured.
