My Private War.

An invaluable historical record of the journey of six German soldiers who took their amateur movie-cameras to the Russian Front in 1942 and who survived to tell their personal accounts of what went on during that campaign. This remarkably well-preserved footage offers a soldier's-eye view of the day-to-day workings of the Nazi war machine. The narrative voices are those of the soldiers who fifty years later, recall the pressures that coerced them into military service and the emotional repercussions they have experienced in the decades that followed. 1991. 90 min.
