New Kriegsmarine DVD set

Hi, all There is a new DVD set (3 units in a box) about the Kriegsmarine. About 2/3 is the same old material that most of us known, but 1/3 is totally new, at least for me. Minutes and minutes, if not hours, of never seen footage. An example: 5 minutes devoted to the meeting of Atlantis and Admiral ...

The Armada
