- Ch 354Embedded 45' Shooting War in GermanyThis first episode covers the last week of February to late March. When American troops started their final invasion of Nazi Germany in February 1945, U.S. Army cameramen were at their side. Over a thousand reels have been preserved; many of them untouched for decades. The cameramen covered many stories of victory and defeat, death and liberation. Faces of despair and joy, scenes of war and peace.Africa FreedThe conquest of Tunisia was a triumph for the United Nations, who on land, sea and air, worked as one. This film, together with another made by American Allies, shows how victory was shaped and achieved. Africa Freed tells chiefly of the part played by British arms as recorded by our cameramen who marched alongside. It is a tribute to those fighting with allies in American and France.
