  • Military History on Film - Requests & Scope

    This forum is open to all members wishing to discuss military video documentation - newsreels or documentaries. The moderator has access to over 350GB of newsreels and related combat footage from World War II and other conflicts during the 20th Century from German, British, Vichy French, Italian, Hungarian and Soviet sources, as well as a few other countries. If there is anything any ACG member is looking for in particular - a certain battle, campaign, military equipment, units, etc - post your request here.

    If the art of war were nothing but the art of avoiding risks,glory would become the prey of mediocre minds. Napoleon

      Tough call there, Legate. My newsreels from WWI are mostly French from January to September 1918. Have footage from the Western, Italian and Salonika fronts, including Saint-Mihiel.

                      Dear ACG staff .
                      I want to make a complaint .
                      When someone is consistantly posting stuff as good as skoblin, why can't we rep them twice in a row.
                      He is constantly posting great stuff the rest of us would not have a clue on how to obtain, and deserves all the credit that should be his due.

                          I believe I have something showing reindeer on the Lapland front. Will check through my Soviet newsreels for Norway and Special Forces.

                          Doubtful any videos on German flights over Sweden. Was generally frowned on to film that. I do have one of a Soviet bombing raid on Sweden though. Will post in a Winter War thread.

                            Any footage of the War Trophy Exhibition in Moscow in 1943?
