Superb footage !

Yes, thanks. I recognised not a few stills from these sequences and had no idea they were part of film footage.

thanks for sharing, the sharpness of the footage in the later parts is exceptional. It looks like someone with a digital camera went back in time.

Thanks for the link. I find the film fascinating and surprisingly well done (maybe not too surprising, as it was evidently intended for Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin's viewing).

But alas, I am disheartened and even distressed by the comments I find after the video. Is YouTube really such a den of deplorables?

Hi Mk 1, I must admit, I just watched the video, but on my TV not a computer, and didn't see any of the comments.
