Why We Fight. Nazi Strike,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Why We Fight - Nazi Strike  [DVD] (DVD)I saw a letter asking about whether this film was available, the letter writer had seen it during the war and was stunned. I am deeply interested in the history of WW2 and couldn't give up the search. I found out that this series of initially seven films, known as 'Why We Fight', were made by Franz Kapra, the influential film director. I originally ordered this episode, but, the 'Japan' episode arrived instead, this was quickly resolved. They all encompass the grim reality of what was taking place throughout the free world as the Nazi war machine rampaged across borders, and the Japanese bringing their religious slant onto the battlefield. These films explain why they want to fight, how they fight, their ethos, their religious fervour, and their brainwashed arrogance, all seen through contemporary footage.
Rooseveldt saw this film, and said that it should be played in every cinema in the free world, so that people can see what is taking place before their very eyes. I agree heartily with his sentiments for the time.
