Friday WWII Flix: “Kurland ’44”

WWIIShort Films – The short (14:25) WWII era film “Kurland ’44” was published to YouTube in December of 2016 by ParaLight WorX. They have produced several short films, many with a WWII theme. The synopsis for this film:

It is late October of 1944 and a young soldier named Karl Franke has been shipped to Courland, Latvia. He must prove himself to his fellow soldiers in his first confrontation with the Russian Army.

This is a well-made film available in up to 1080p resolution. The dialog is all in German, but there are English subtitles. This is one of the better WWII era short films I have seen.
