A defiant anti-Nazi, Albert Göring spent the war years busting the persecuted out of concentration camps, smuggling them across borders and funnelling aid to refugees throughout Europe. He did everything to undermine his brother's regime. But by 1944 the Gestapo were hunting him down like a dog. Did Hermann step in and save his brother?
Enter William, a twentysomething from Sydney, Australia, who stumbles upon the tattered pieces of Albert's history. Shelving plans for a Ph.D., William sets off on a three year odyssey across eight countries and three continents to piece together the puzzling life of Albert Göring.
Using rare and, in some cases, never before seen color footage, this documentary examines World War II from the perspective of the Japanese. The film also utilizes original letters and diary entries written by Japanese soldiers and civilians during the war. Japan's War in Color looks to present both the innocent and the guilty parties involved in what was culturally touted as a Holy War, and examine the effect it had on all of their lives.

After receiving critical acclaim at the Toronto International Film Festival and an unprecedented theatrical release in Israel, American director Gaylen Ross "Killing Kasztner: The Jew Who Dealt With Nazis" now poses the question to U.S. audiences: Was Rezso Kasztner a heroic rescuer of Jews or a villain colluding with the Nazis? Through accounts of the inflammatory political trial, startling revelations after 50 years by Kasztners assassin, Zeev Eckstein, and a chilling meeting between the killer and Kasztners daughter, Zsuzsi, audiences finally can decide the legacy of this forgotten man.
his great five-volume series, by Guido Knopp, examines the naivete of German youths in the 1930's and 1940's. This is the only documentary I have seen that focuses on the way the Nazis used children to conduct their war.
In this second volume of the series, we are given a glimpse into how the Nazis were able to simultaneously discount women as mere baby factories and employ their youth and energy to the benefit of the Reich. The League of German Girls was formed to ensure that young ladies understood, and performed, their duties as bearers of Aryan heirs. Later, these young women were also enlisted to assist directly in the fighting of the war.
The tall, thin American officer filmed walking beside Goering was Major Paul Kubala. As the officer in charge of the Augsburg interrogation facility, Major Kubala was Goering's interpreter and primary interrogator.
Thanks to Lady Josette Kubala Walton, for the following precious informations about her parents and their important historical role:
"My father obtained a map from Goering with the location of all of the hidden land mines surrounding Heidelberg... once all of the map was constructed (verbally), my father immediately went to Heidelberg and advised the city leaders so that the farmers would not go out in the spring to start planting....The History Channel produced an anniversary film of WWII and at the very end you will see my father with Goering at the now famous press conference where reporters later made an issue that Goering was being treated with special consideration... the truth was that my father was using psychology to make Goering feel that he was still important... it worked and he talked and talked and talked. From those "talks" he divulged the location of the salt mines where his stolen treasures were hidden... and many, many other important issues."

Germany, late 1930ies. Recently surfaced 16 mm color amateur footage filmed in Karinhalle, Hermann Goering's legendary mansion 80 Km from Berlin.
All the Goering's private films were considered allegedly destroyed when he ordered the SS to blow out the entire estate with high explosive (because of the upcoming Russians), on April 20, 1945, before his departure to Berlin for the Fuhrer's last birthday party. He understood that he would never be returning to Karinhalle.
These fragments are probably the only remaining elements of color footage from Goering's private films collection.

Lord Bootsy Jenkins III wrote: The is my first documentary from film school. I interviewed a very cool dude and his Army buddies. They were Veterans from WWII who were actually involved in the D-Day invasion. They served their country all while being discriminated by the very same entity. Look, Listen and Learn!
This 2008 Emmy nominated documentary pays tribute to the valor and sacrifice of African-American soldiers while shedding light on the discrimination and disregard that at times proved more threatening than the rigors of battle.

The Fighting Lady (1944) is an Academy Award winning documentary/propaganda film produced by the U.S. Navy.
The plot of the film revolves around the life of seamen on board an anonymous aircraft carrier - "the Fighting Lady". Frequently mentioned is the old adage that war is 99% waiting. The film is notable for its use of Technicolor footage shot by "gun cameras" hoisted directly on naval artillery during combat. This gives a very realistic edge to the film, while the chronological following of the ship and crew mirror the experiences of the seamen who went from green recruits through the rigors of military life, battle, and, for some, death.

6th June 1944, Normandy invasion from German perspective.
As late as 13:35 the German 352nd division was reporting that the assault had been hurled back into the sea. From their vantage point at Pointe de la Percée overlooking the whole of the beach from the western end the German perception was that the assault had been stopped at the beach. An officer there noted that troops were seeking cover behind obstacles and counted ten tanks burning. However, as early as 07:35 the third battalion 726th Grenadier Regiment, defending Draw F-1 on Fox Green beach, was reporting that 100--200 American troops had penetrated its front, with enemy inside the wire at WN-62 and WN-61 under attack from the rear.

Guy Gabaldon died on August 31, 2006 and the world lost someone very special. During the bloody struggle for Saipan in July 1944, U.S. Marine PFC Guy Gabaldon is officially credited with capturing over 1500 Japanese soldiers and civilians - single-handedly, a record that is untouchable in the annals of American military history. For over sixty years, Guy talked about his exploits on that island, sharing his experience and using his celebrity to inspire new generations who valued bravery and bravado. However, war experience alone does not make a life, and Guy’s didn’t stop in 1944. He lived many different lives and most importantly he took it upon himself to help the less fortunate, particularly the wayward teenagers he encountered when he returned to the Mariana Islands in 1980, where he would live for twenty years.

These attacks, beginning in 1944, followed several very significant-critical military and strategic defeats for Japan, its decreasing capacity to wage war along with loss of experienced pilots, and the Allies' increased ability, due largely to the industrial capacity of the United States and Japan's reluctance to surrender. In these attacks Japanese pilots would deliberately attempt to crash their aircraft into naval vessels and other ships.

In 1940, actor Jimmy Stewart was drafted into the Army Air Corps but was rejected due to a weight problem. The USAAC had strict height and weight requirements for new recruits and Stewart was five pounds under the standard. To get up to 148 pounds he sought out the help of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's muscle man, Don Loomis, who was legendary for his ability to add or subtract pounds in his studio gymnasium. Stewart subsequently attempted to enlist in the United States Army Air Corps but still came in under the weight requirement although he persuaded the AAF enlistment officer to run new tests, this time passing the weigh-in,with the result that Stewart successfully enlisted in the Army in March 1941. He became the first major American movie star to wear a military uniform in World War II. During the course of the war, he flew over twenty missions in a B-24 Liberator, he was a two-time recipient of the Air Medal and was awarded the Croix de Guerre by the French Army. In the fullness of time, he attained the rank of General in the reserves. It's a wonderful life.

The state of neutrality kept by Brazil since the beginning of WWII was disrupted by Nazi Germany when U-Boats sank Brazilian merchant ships, killing over 1,000 civilians. In August 9th 1943, the Brazilian Expeditionary Force (BEF) was created and Division General João Baptista Mascarenhas de Moraes assigned as its Chief Commander. Organized in a similar manner as the American Army, BEF was composed of 1st Expeditionary Infantry Division (or 1st DIE) among other non-division units and sent to Italy.

"We accompany one of the 2,000 American plane formations that are bringing ruin and panic to Berlin. Miles of vapor-streaks are trailing after the huge Flying Fortresses, winging through the frigid sky. Crews are 'on oxygen.' Then Berlin is sighted and the bombs start cascading downward. The scene below is like a field of mushrooms. Flak comes up, and one of our motors goes dead. We head back to Blighty. Some shops drop flares announcing wounded aboard, and instant medical care is waiting, when the ships roll to a stop. Colonel Mumford interviews some of the other participants in the raid. They give their crisp, spicy version of this one, and ask for return assignments."
HEINRICH HIMMLER, 1900-1945), German Nazi leader, who was head of the dreaded SS (Schutzstaffel, also called the Blackshirts). Although pedantic, dogmatic and dull, Himmler emerged under Hitler as a respected player in the Nazi power game. His strength lay in a combination of unusual shrewdness, burning ambition, and servile loyalty to Hitler.

He recalls with a small hint of nostalgia about the plays they used to perform for each other or the little band they formed when the Swiss Red Cross sent them musical instruments. His story is about how the American spirit remained un-broken, even in trying times.
"Independence Day in Europe - In France, General Eisenhower observes General Bradley fire a giant howitzer which signals our massed artillery into a massed crescendo of fire.
