The Gustav and Dora were the names given to two of Germany's 80cm ultra-heavy railway guns. Developed in the late 1930s, these mammoth artillery pieces were built principally to help destroy the main forts along the Maginot Line. These twin giants weighed almost 1,350 tonnes and could fire shells weighing seven tonnes to a range of almost thirty miles. Similarly, the Thor siege mortar was also a giant on the battlefield, sporting a 60cm calibre barrel, six mile range and weighing in at over 120 tonnes. Although these guns were not ready to be used in the Battle for France, they were later used against the Soviet Union at the siege of Sevastopol to good effect.

The German Propaganda Kompanien (PK) captured the events of Hitler's war on every front. Their footage was used to produce Die Deutsche Wochenschau, a weekly cinema newsreel detailing the events of World War II on land, sea and air. For the first time these unique primary source films have been collated, edited and translated into English in order to produce a complete military history of the Third Reich drawn exclusively from German primary sources. This amazing range of films captures the events of World War II exactly as they were presented to contemporary cinema audiences while the actions on the battlefield were still unfolding. This volume featuring translated Wochenschau newsreels records the events following the failure at Kursk. As the tide began to turn against Hitler, only the intervention von Manstein and the victory at Kharkov slowed up the collapsing of the Russian Front.
