I unfortunately cannot view the film right now to inspect closer, but I remember seeing PPSh41.
Maybe I was not paying attention and it could have been Suomi KP/-31 which is similar...but still the barrel is very distinctive for the PPSh.

Found it!

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1508238/

Apocalypse - La 2e guerre mondiale

Just seen the two first episodes of this documentary, great quality on the pictures

For example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJLGzEeexhM

Bumping this post now, mainly because...

This series was awesome, 6 parts 1 hour each. Great color photo. It's up on YouTube.

Good watch, loved the parts covering the Fall of France, Barbarossa and the Pacific.

Aw, sorry mate!

Thought YouTube had some with English subtitles according to another thread regarding this show but I could not find any when I took a closer look now, my bad.

John Ford's "The Battle of Midway"  and also Moscow Strikes Back, best title ever?

Saints and Soldiers
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0373283/

Loosely based off a true story from the famous Malmedy Massacre.

Small group of soldiers try to make their way from behind German lines to their main lines.

Set in the Battle of the Bulge/Ardennes Offensive

Surprisingly good movie.

World War II documentary's
« Reply #36 on: 27-07-2010, 01:07:08 »
I've been running out of ww2-themed documentaries, with the recent surge in colored ww2 documentaries ('WW2 in HD' and  'Apocalypse: ww2' for instance, but also the, while lacking, but still worth to watch: Battlefront and Lost evidence: The Pacific) I was quite satisfied for a while.

However, I think I finally ran out of ww2-themed documentaries to watch. I've seen all the old stuff as well; Battlefield, World at War, Gladiators of WW2, Hitler's generals & bodyguard). Anything worthwhile watching left? Ofcourse, the more specific and indepth the topic usually is, its often more interesting to watch. :)

Ken Burns' The War is a truly incredible piece of filmmaking.

Also Nova's Secrets of the Dead: D-Day is the best documentary on D-Day that I have seen. Such a wide variety of perspectives are interviewed, from British Royal Marine commandos who scouted the beaches months before the landings, to British glider pilots from Pegasus Bridge, US 82nd Airborne paratroopers, LCVP drivers, Sherman crewmen from Sword Beach, a US Army engineer who happened to be the first man off the beach on Omaha, and a German soldier who defended WN 62 along with Heinz Severloh.

- Apocalypse - The Second World War
- Visions of War
- The World At War

All extremely good.

1 of the 3 (can't remember which) has some opinion in it, which is annoying (ex: hitler was a bad man hurr durr) as it has nothing to do with a documentary (just getting straight facts).

Most documentaries don't even pretend to be unbiased.

There is definitely some French supporting going on in Apocalypse, ah well, its just funny if you know the facts. I liked Ken Burns 'The War' as well, but not incredibly well.

I'm trying to find the right title of the movie of this clip:

Why is that?

Focusing too much on early wars? (like 4 out of 6 episodes)
