World War 2 German Army Color Footage No.11, Soldiers in Europe 1939 – 1941



Only 17 months after Adolf Hitler announced the German rearmament program in 1935, the army reached its projected goal of 36 divisions. During the autumn of 1937, two more corps were formed. In 1938 four additional corps were formed with the inclusion of the five divisions of the Austrian Army after the Anschluss in March. During the period of its expansion under Hitler, the German Army continued to develop concepts pioneered during World War I, combining ground and air assets into combined arms forces. Coupled with operational and tactical methods such as encirclements and “battle of annihilation”, the German military managed quick victories in the two initial years of World War II, a new style of warfare described as Blitzkrieg for its speed and destructive power.

  1. A good channel. We have also collected a large number of documentaries of the Soviet Union about the Second World War. About the battles of the Red Army on the Eastern Front.

  2. These uniforms especially for officers are still the most captivating, dominating, and somewhat sexy uniforms. American uniforms still look like they just out on grandpas Sunday clothes. Why? Haha

  3. IF THERE'S A GUY NAMED :Cera ten, please talk to me on this comment, cause, i think there's a blockage which isn't allowing me to reply a comment on your post where you've mentioned "why are indiana so….".
