Victory in the West
Sieg Im Westen: A film of the Supreme Command of the German army. This deluxe restored version of the Third Reich’s most ambitious war documentary chronicles Hitler’s lightning conquest of Holland, Belgium and France in 1940.
The six-week campaign, marked by continuous combat and spectacular German victories, established the blitzkrieg as a bold strategy that revolutionized warfare. A combination of German newsreels and captured Allied footage are melded to produce an authentic and riveting record of the campaign.
