Overview
 
Pen & Sword Digital; Running Time: 60 (mins), Documentary. This DVD explores the Italian Campaign, fought from July 1943 until the end of the Second World War in 1945 where 60,000 Allied and 50,000 German troops lost their lives. Featured on the DVD are battles fought in the invasion of Sicily, the allied advance to Rome and the battles for Northern Italy, as well as air operations. All of this is documented from the German perspective which culminates in a fascinating DVD that also explores the powers of the German propaganda machine. This volume featuring translated Wochenschau newsreels records Churchill's attempt to seize the “soft underbelly” of Europe, which proved to be dogged by the defensive battles that lasted to the final monemts of World War II.
