Movie Reviews

This movie is a Rip-Off!!!
A. Timmons | USA | 10/27/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This movie was put together piecemeal using old Army handheld footage. The first two-thirds of the DVD is simply old footage of a bombed out Germany. After 2-3 minutes it all looks the same. There is no narration whatsoever. The final third of the movie is an old documentary of a day in the life of a German family. Very boring. Uninspiring. This could have been an opportunity to convey some insight using old footage; however the auther of this DVD obviously piecemealed a bunch of old footage together and slapped a price on it. In fact, the guy that gave this five star review... has given a bunch of other videos similar ratings and similar misleading reviews. Just read his. This is a total rip-off!!"
A Learning Experience

"Who knew just how bad Germany was hit by world war 2? In school they taught us about the Marshall Plan but I didn't realize that we did that because we almost ruined an entire country.

I watched this DVD with my mouth agape. There is a lot of footage of complete rubble on the ground and people's lives were destroyed.

I didnt' think anything could make me feel bad for the Germans after WW2 but this disk did."
Disturbing But Interesting

"This DVD was very creepy, but I'm glad I ordered it. When I learned about WWII in history the videos we saw of the end of the war were all about American soldiers coming home victorious.

What I never thought about was what happened to the countries that lost the war.

When I watched this DVD it brought home to me that there were a lot of innocent German people who had their lives ruined and cities destroyed - even though they had nothing to do with the Nazis.

There is no narration or commentary on the DVD, but that just made it scarier for me - in a good way."
The Little Known Story of Germany Rebuilding
John Matlock | Winnemucca, NV | 06/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At the end of World War I Germany surrendered. But the military was convinced that this was because of a failure of will on the part of the German home front rather than a defeat on the battlefield. During the second world war the Allies decided that this wouldn't happen again. The Allies insisted on unconditional surrender of the German Army. This happened only after the country was basically destroyed.

The famous air raids into Germany by the Americans during the day and the British at night really didn't do much in the early years of the war. But by 1945 the number of planes, the tactics, and the Allies long range fighters had all come together so that the ability to destroy large parts of any city existed. And this force was used.

One major target had been the fuel supplies. Germany was forced to greatly expand their use of synthetic fuels. And during the last months of the war virtually all of the potato crop was used to produce fuel. This left the prospect of starvation of the German people.

After the final surrender, Germany was starving, without shelter (and the coldest winter in many years). The Allies worked to rebuild Germany into a working nation, so as to not leave a festering sore to start the next world war.

This DVD is about the destruction and rebuilding of Germany."
