DVD Description

Experience a truly new perspective on history’s greatest war.

Incredibly, during WWII both the Allies and the Nazi propaganda machine were using 3D technology to produce colour photographs, and even films, in stereoscopic 3D. These historical gems were locked away in secret archives until now, when today’s 3D consumer technology allows us to view these incredible artefacts in our own homes, bringing images from history to life in a way few have ever seen before.

3D content contained in this treasure trove of rare and dramatic material includes: reconnaissance photos shot by the Allies; a collection of revealing images shot by the Nazis that detail the rise and fall of the Third Reich from within; stunning photos secretly taken by a civilian in occupied France; and an amazing 3D motion picture filmed by the Nazis in 1943. These have not been adapted or artificially upgraded into 3D, they were actually shot using 3D technology.

Whatever footage you may have seen before, nothing will prepare you for seeing history come alive in a totally new dimension!

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive. 18 Feb 2012
By David
WWII in 3D is a collection of 3d pictures accompanied with narration by historians, there are also a short amount of various video clips, however the main problem with this Blu-ray is its only around 45 minutes long, despite this whats included is spectacular, its truly amazing to see real 3d footage taken from so long ago, the video stands out but the images are still extremely impressive, for me this is a must buy, its short but very sweet, of course to enjoy the 3d you need a 3d TV and 3d Blu-ray player

Photography- Concentration camps & the invasion of Poland, Russia & Italy`s involvement. D Day & the liberation of Paris. Video- German instructional film in how to fire an 88mm gun at British & American planes at 20,000ft altitude. The whole of the Second world war & a few photos from the great war with the people who were interested in 3D filming (one still alive in 2012 when programme was made) & views of where they are today. This film is okay for any age to watch as it gives a new experience in depth which is not available to anyone unless they were there at the time. No story behind the programme as the videos are the only surviving 3D films placed into a 45 minute show.

One's immediate response on picking up this DVD is one of incredulity. How is it possible to have WW2 movies in 3D? The first response is remastering as is currently being practiced. Within the first few minutes of watching, one is disabused of all of these notions. This is original extant 3D footage of WW2 albeit sparse & albeit mainly of German origin. So the claim is valid; to a point though!

Cynics could claim that this is merely a motley collection of random photographs but it does showcase the nascent 3D technology of this period. Whether 3D films prove to be a fad or of passing interest, this DVD is of interest not only to the History lover but also to the technology enthusiast.

The DVD commences with the pre WW2 period when one of Hitler's acolytes, Heinrich Hoffman, decides to use 3D photos to showcase his unbridled pride in the Nazis. Together with a 3D publisher, Otto Schönstein, they publish these photos in exquisite books known as Raumbild or "space pictures". Whether this was due his misguided belief in Nazi hegemony or a misguided sense of duty, one will never know. However Heinrich Hoffman, a dedicated Nazi, will forever have the doubtful distinction of being remembered as the 3D Nazi Photographer, at least in my mind.

Most of the surviving footage either relates to this period or to the period prior to the zenith of their military supremacy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing images 11 April 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
It was a big surprise for me to discover that during the WWII period, that I lived, 3D images of the war have been produced and preserved. This can, and should be, a very interesting field for the BD to invest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some 3D is OK but a bit repetitive 9 April 2013
By Archer
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Interesting to learn that Hitler used 3D before the war in propaganda movies, but it's a pity there weren't more examples (they were destroyed in bombings of course).

A lot of Allied 3D still photography of targets and continuous repeating of what German 3D footage they did have.

I would wait until it's a bit cheaper

4.0 out of 5 stars WWII 17 Oct 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I was very surprised at the development of the 3d system during the 1930. I remember during my childhood during the war years looking at 3d images through a device owned by my uncle. The Germans were famous for their skill manufacturing cameras and this was vividly portrayed in this film with crystal clear images. This film is worth watching to see the very realistic destruction brought to the world by Hitler.
