For Fallschirmjager and Kreta '41 fans, not sure if this is new but it is a movie based on the invasion of Crete and the Cretan Partisans. I just discovered this film myself and ordered it... should be here today or tomorrow.
Here is the link to the website that has a great trailer:
Received the Movie and watched it this morning before work.
The Documentary gave the side of the Cretan resistance and British special forces that were operating on Crete from '42 Through '44 including A first hand account of the abduction of the German General by the British special forces leader.
Many Cretan civilians and Resistance fighters give first hand accounts of these years and the brutality on the indigenous populus as well as the brutality towards the occupation forces.
As a history geek It absolutely filled a gap for me as anything pertaining to WWII and especially early German Airborne does. It does have some contradicting information about the Invasion and way too many Baggy Fleigerbluse's. It seems the uniforms were provided by Lost Battalions.
I would love to hear the side of the German Mountain and Paratroop veterans.
I would absolutely recommend this to anyone It was well worth the $20 price tag!
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
