    Well, this is not exactly a WWII video, but I am sure you will find it interesting; The Condor Legion was a unit composed of "volunteers" from the German Air Force (Luftwaffe) and from the German Army (Wehrmacht Heer) which served with the Nationalists during the Spanish Civil War of July 1936 to March 1939. The Condor legion developed methods of terror bombing which were used widely in the Second world war shortly afterwards. The bombing of Guernica was the most infamous atrocity carried out by the Condor Legion during this period. Hugo Sperrle commanded the aircraft units of the Condor Legion and Wilhelm Ritter von Thoma commanded the ground units. This is an advertisement video from german goverment, describing the role that germans played in Spain. Enjoy it.
