Hey everyone! Very Happy

After 5 months of hard work, I've finally created a highly detailed documentary telling the story of Rommel's first desert offensive (Operation Sonnenblume to the beginning of Tobruk). And I thought you guys may be interested in seeing it - I know a lot of you like your history.

It's not an operation that's been covered much in other documentaries. Usually it's just casually mentioned that Rommel somehow pushed the British back, but without actually saying how he managed this. So I wanted to cover the battle in detail (at the battalion and even kampfgruppe level where possible).

The 3D graphics are inspired by various strategy computer games - although my strategic map is far more dynamic than the Close Combat ones :wink:

Link to the YouTube Video!

Here's an example of the graphics



I'm also currently doing a COI LP if anyone's interested in watching/taking part in that (Link!). I'm naming units after comrades again, so if you want a unit I'll add you to the reserve list.


And just for good measure, here's the video bibliography!

Thanks Mooxe!

I am using Bandicam. Why? What is it you're using? I know a lot of people use Fraps and others, but Bandicam hasn't ever let me down and I'd highly recommend it.
