During World War 2, German newsreels were often edited and narrated in another language for distribution to friendly Axis, occupied and neutral countries. In many cases, the German originals have disappeared and all that remains today are these foreign language versions. There's some great footage here and the pictures tell the story!

Some highlights:German air & naval forces (Tirpitz!) attack Allied convoys to Murmansk. Italian Sub Barbarigo operating in the South Atlantic. German & Italian forces attack an allied convoy in the Med. The fight for the Red October Factory in Stalingrad. The battle before Leningrad. Rommel's Afrika Korps is resupplied. German defensive lines and fortifications in Italy. HE 111 bomber attacks on the Eastern Front. Axis forces defend the "Kuban Bridgehead" against Soviet attacks. Elite German assault boat troops fight in the Kuban River marshes. The German commerce raider "Thor's" epic voyage to Japan.
