Rate this:
Featuring more than 20 hours of footage, this six DVD set contains 106 newsreels filmed and produced by the Canadian Army Film Unit during the Second World War. The front-line cameramen were soldiers first. In addition to camera instruction, they received infantry training and took guns into battle along with their 35 mm movie cameras to record the Canadian infantry in action. Their heroic efforts enabled them to scoop their British and American allies on the major events in Europe including the invasion of Sicily and the top story of the century - D-Day. The newsreels, popular in home front movie theatres, also feature the daily routines of the soldiers behind the lines, life on the home front in Canada and historic footage of politicians and generals from the Allied and Axis countries.
