Seen that docu already ?

Hitler's Britain documentary on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aonZfBkPnMA)


A nicely done insight into Hitler's personally written invasion plans of Operation Sealion and the secret british plans for a resistance guerillia war in case the isles get invaded and the government falls.

It also covers the extensive plans for the occupation of Britain and detailed plans on how to handle the population. Even including name and adress lists of individual persons. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Someone really had too much time at his hands and was so given the order to work out all the logistics down to the micro-managment level. And that before the invasion even started http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I am not surprised , this fits to the ugly german bureaucratism i am forced to face way too often here. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif ... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

You thought the nazis are defeated ? Try to do a tax declaration here and you will know where they now are http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The docu then predicts, with the help of actors, what this resistance war was supposed to look like and what the likely outcome would had been.

Especially interesting is the content of the original sealed orders of the resistance teams for the case their cells would be "activated".

Yeah, I saw that some time ago on History Television. I recorded it on my digital recorder then made a DVD of it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I wonder if the Germans ever managed to conquer England would they have adapted to the local culture? The Brits did a propaganda gag film during the war, which I have posted here or someone else did some time ago, "The Lambeth Walk":

I find it interesting that Robert Harris, in his novel Fatherland, also assumed that Edward VIII would be put back on the british throne.

This is mentioned in the intro of the movie adaption of Fatherland (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvR15G8yEhg)

A excellent novel by the way. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif


The only thing Harris forgot to include into his alternate universe was Mrs. Hitler. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

How could he forget to mention the Reich's first lady ? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

"Fatherland" was a most excellent read, I agree. I read it when I was vacationing in England with my wife and kids. We were on a train to Yorkshire while I was reading it. My wife thought I was missing some nice scenery, but in my mind I was wondering what "Germania" looked like, as Harris described it. I also thought Rutger Hauer did a decent acting job as the lead character in the movie.

Im wondering why nobody suggested to do a remake by now http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif


With modern CGI , one could produce a movie which has even more scenes as described in the book.

The one thing i did not like about the movie was the heavily changed ending but on the other hand i can of course understand that the book is just too long to fit everything in length of tv production.

CGI did not existed yet when the movie went into production so they had to ignore a lot of content from the book.

For instance the bus sightseeing tour März and his son make through Germania near the beginning or März having that meeting in front of the Great Hall of the People.

All of this is now not a problem anymore so time is ripe for a remake. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif


As some may remember, i took part in the restauration and modernization of the Olympiastadion (with my humble cable pulling contribution http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ) which belonged to phase 1 of the city's planned transformation from Berlin to the "Capital of the World , Germania"

One of the few examples which not remained blueprints and models but were actually built.

CGI of the Great Hall (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oy1xdWvIFU4&NR=1)

One of the other examples are the street lamps which were designed by Albert Speer and are still there.
