Short World War II Era Film “Kanonenfutter (Cannon Fodder)”

Short FilmsWWII – I came across the short (14:33) World War II era film “Kanonenfutter” (cannon fodder) yesterday. The film was posted to YouTube in November of 2015 by Giant Stone Pictures, an independent filmmaking group in Northern Germany. The synopsis:

The story of a young Wehrmacht soldier in the WWII, over which the horror in the trenches falls. Will he survive?

The film is dark, almost looking Black and While. Most of the dialog is in German, but with English subtitles. The plot is not hard to follow. It is not a bad production, but the fact that no shell casings are ejected by any of the weapons distracts from the production.


If you are interested in the WWII era of history, you may find these two pages of mine of interest. 

The  World War II Sources” page is a collection of more than 290 links to museums, memorials, websites, Facebook pages, Twitter feeds and other sources with information on the World War II era in history.

The “World War II Timeline” page shows events leading up to WWII, as well as during the war. Events are broken down into the Pacific and European Theaters by date.
