I started posting images from the Nazi propaganda filmstrip, Der Atlantik Wall, right after the 70th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Normandy (D-Day) on June 6, 1944. My purpose in posting these photos was not only to provide what appears to be an inside look into the German military-industrial complex during World War II, but also to demonstrate the massive obstacles that Allied forces overcame during and after the invasion of Europe. We have now come to the end of the film, appropriately enough, during the week of Veterans Day. I omitted a few pictures as redundant or just boring, but otherwise, you have seen the entire filmstrip. We end with the last three photos: a U-boat tucked safely in its underground pen, an artillery emplacement firing, and the final frame of the film, the Nazi eagle. I hope you found these photos as interesting as I did.
