The Propagandakompanien, the German propaganda companies, were the primary method of communication of the Third Reich.

The soldiers of the Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS were the eyes and ears of the Ministry of Propaganda who relied upon them to transform the reality of victories into defeats.

While their photographs and their films are known, nothing has been written about the people behind the cameras, all the technicians associated with the propaganda machine.

This first volume presents the implementation of this psychological weapon, from an organizational point of view, technical and human. With extensive documentation, the Wehrmacht propaganda companies are presented with a particular focus on 6 Pk. of the Luftwaffe. Finally, thanks to the testimony of reporters the author details the campaigns in Poland, Norway, France and the beginning of the Russian campaign.

Review:

The images and films produced throughout the war in the ever-changing media war that aimed to keep the moral of the people on a high are well known, but until now very little has been written about the men behind the cameras and those who prepared this important material. This new book by Nicolas Ferard seeks to redress that problem and has gathered together a stunning collection of material that looks behind the scenes at the workings for the Propaganda Kompanien." "The first volume looks at the work of the various units from an organizational point of view and features images of the men and their machines both in front and behind the camera and as such will appeal to anyone with an interest in this rarely covered aspect of warfare -- Military Machines International Military Machines International 09/12/2014 The photographs of the individuals, the images they created in the war's campaigns (they were present everywhere) are shown in great detail and there is plenty of inspiration and references for modellers too, all printed large and in great detail on art-quality paper - fabulous. -- Marcus Nicholls Tamiya Model Magazine 17/02/2015 My Top book for 2014 is...Propoganda Kompanien. This book, like a well-trained grenadier with a Panzerfaust, stopped me dead in my tracks. I knew it was going to be good, i didn"t know it was going to be like Christmas dinner with all the trimmings good though. If ever a book should light up like a Christmas tree and play "O Tannenbaum" when you open the cover this should be it. Quality, research, hard work and remarkable photographs throughout this lived up to and beyond ANY expectations I had. Top book, top place in my Christmas top five." -- Mark Barnes War History Online 12/01/2014

About the Author:

For his first book, Nicolas Férard reveals a decade of research on the topic of German reporters and WWII Correspondence, with descendants of members of Propagandakompanien allowing him to build a framework on this subject which is still largely unknown in France.
