Are you tired of seeing the same old World War II combat footage? Do you feel that every documentary you see concerning the battle for Europe is just a rehashed version of the several you have seen before? If you are looking for a new way to view the historic operations of this incredible conflict, then you have found the right place. At Combat Reels we are dedicated to bringing ALL of the footage that was captured by the U.S. Army Signal Corps, Coast Guard and Navy photographers, which we can identify, to the general public.

During World War II there were over 10,000 reels of images that were caught by the brave combat cameramen of the U.S. Army, yet less that 20% of these are ever broadcast for you to view. Our videos are built on the idea that all of the footage is important, not just the images Hollywood deems appropriate. Our DVD videos are constructed to contain only images of the unit that you want to see. We have divided these up reels to show all of the images available for every unit engaged in all of the campaigns of World War II. "These original reels of silent footage have not been edited or had any artificial sounds added to them. They are left in the original state as they were recorded by the cameraman in 1944. This allows the consumer to see all of the footage there is and decide what is important to them."

Beginning with the first DVD series, "Invasion of Normandy", Combat Reels has produced 15 volumes, one for each unit, covering all of the units involved in the D-Day Landings. Films begin just before the invasion as troops prepare in England, and run through the breakout of operation "Cobra", and to the middle of August as the battle for Normandy winds down with the closing of the "Falaise Gap".

The Second Series, "Liberation of Western Europe" picks up where the first series ends. This series covers from the liberation of Paris, in late August, through the race across France to the Lorraine region, and the liberation of Belgium and Holland during operation "Market Garden". Followon series' will include The Battle of the Bulge will portrays the actions of units cracking the Siegfried line just before the German surprise attack in mid-December through the American counterattack as the lines are regained and U.S. forces continue to push into Germany. The final series for the conflict in Europe is "Defeat of Nazi Germany". Follow each American Division as they drive over the Rhine into the heart of Germany and crush the remaining resistance for an unconditional surrender and end the war in Europe. All of these series are an exciting way to follow your favorite unit through their participation in the European Theater. You have never viewed World War II until you take time to look at the shots Hollywood didn't take the time to find.
