World War Two

               World War Two Film Clips


Europe Enslaved (PM Tabloid, 1942)

"Today in Europe there are more slaves than ever existed on any continent at any time. Hitler had to fight for every one of them... They used gangs, particularly in Poland, to round up workers from the streets, to drag them from churches and theaters and even from homes to go to work in Germany."


At the time it was estimated that there were as many as 6,000,000 slaves in Germany; half of them were prisoners of war.

The Japanese Did Not Like The Germans (Collier's Magazine, 1943)

"A ranking member of of the German embassy staff in Tokyo told me a few weeks before Pearl Harbor, 'If Japan goes to war against America and Britain, our days will be numbered here, too. Japan will wage a race war in which we Germans will be regarded as enemies along with the rest of the white race. It is only a matter of time. They intend to conquer all of us, but they are smart enough not to tackle all of us at once.'"

Imperial Japan had a great many reasons to dislike their Nazi ally and most of them were far more legitimate than this one. All of them are are laid out in the attached article.

 

The Guerrilla War That Never Was (Collier's Magazine, 1945)

During the Autumn of 1944, when the great momentum was with the Allies and the German Army was in rapid retreat, the SS newspaper Das Schwartz Korps declared that an Allied-occupied Germany would not be a placid land:

"The Allied soldiers shall find no peace. Death will lurk behind every corner. They might establish a civilian administration, but its leaders would not live a month. Nobody could execute the enemy's orders without digging his own grave. No judge could pronounce sentences dictated by the enemy without being crucified in his own window frame in the dead of night."

This article goes into great detail concerning how the SS intended to make good on these words.

 

Japan Could Not Afford to Go to War (St. Louis Star-Times, 1941)

The day following Japan's debut performance at Pearl Harbor found American economists assessing the economic strength of that country in an effort to understand how long their military would be able to exert power:

"Government economists doubted today that Japan's economy could withstand a long war with the United States."

Four years after the Pearl Harbor attack, a Japanese newspaper editorial expressed deep regret for Japan's aggressiveness in the Second World War, click here to read about it...

 

''Terror in Japan'' Collier's Magazine, 1945)

"On March 10, 1945, a group of Superforts crossed Japan's coast line. Behind them came another group, and another in a line stretching far back toward Saipan. In a long, thin file they roared over Tokyo. They flew low and out of their open bellies spilled bombs of jellied gasoline. When they hit, they burst, spewing out billowing, all-consuming fire. The flames leaped across fire lanes, swallowed factories, destroyed skyscrapers."

Heroes of the Battle of Britain (Collier's Magazine, 1945)

A list of five outstanding Britons (two women and three men) accompanied by a description of their selfless acts performed during the Nazi Blitz on their homeland.

"Who dares to doubt when Britons sing that there will always be an England?"
