At the moment im preparing some videos with rare ww2 color footages of the german army.

No colorized stuff, only real Agfacolor http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I bet you have'nt seen these yet so stay tuned for this little christmas gift http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

There is also color footage which was shot on the conning tower of a u-boat but its not all too long.

Maybe i will include it into a normal b&w u-boat video rather than uploading it as a stand-alone. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Sounds like a great gift, Celeon! I have seen color pictures of German troops before, but color film footage is rare! A real treat!

Bring 'em on! ;-)

Things were going a little bit faster than expected so ...

Here it is http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I have a question :

Could you please tell me if the video turns green for a short moment towards the end ?

Im not sure if this was done by the windows movie maker or if just one of my divx codecs causes me this problem.

Thank you for sharing that. I have always had a keen interest in color footage from the period. Great contribution!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I love it.
So informal.

Two questions though.

1. Who is a guy recieving a Ritterkreutz ?

2. Can you post the original somewhere we can download it ? Or better still reveal your source. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Its from a 3-CD "History of the Wehrmacht" set in german.

To upload the original stuff could be complicated as its 1.3 gb in size http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I dont know who he is but im sure its an easy task for our Luftwaffe experts here to identify him. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Great stuff Celeon! There is a series that was shown on The History Channel called "The Color Of War". All real color footage, of the Second World War, mostly as seen from the American side. I ended up buying the set of VHS tapes for myself. Two of the best episodes that stand out are : The Air War, wich showed great footage of the 8th AF, as well as British Lancasters in action! The other episode, and very appropriate now, was The Silent Service. Great Color action of US subs in the Pacific!
