Excellent Documentary on DVD
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Excellent Documentary on DVD

I bought an excellent documentary on DVD yesterday, covering the US Army advances through Germany in the final months of the Second World War. It is entitled “Embedded ‘45�.

www.amazon.ca/Embedded...B000FSLMFY

It starts with Operation Grenade in Feb. 1945 and presents film footages shot by US Army cameramen in chronological order coving the US Army advances through Germany until the end of the War. There is a detailed narration which places the shots in their proper context and includes information about the Army units involved, the locations and the cameramen. There are many shots showing equipment and vehicles like M4s, M12s, M26s, high speed tractors etc.

I believe that this is the same documentary which has being shown in Canada on History Television under the title “When the War Came to Germany�. It states on the back cover of the DVD that History Television, Canada was involved in its production.

I have no connection to this DVD. I just found it to be excellent and thought that others may also find it to be of interest.
