Battlefield Reporters were used throughout the Second World War by almost every side. They played a hugely important role in documenting the action and driving the propaganda machine – with all sides using the gathered footage to spin to their advantage and keep their countrymen back home on-side and behind the war effort.
The presence of the War Reporter’s cameramen bolsters the confidence of the troops nearby – the soldiers want to appear brave, dashing and handsome under fire for their families and the girls watching the cinema newsreels back home. Interestingly, this is true for the fighting men on both sides…
The German Army Propagandakompanie Cameraman is a characterful model that would make a fantastic Battlefield Reporter for German players.
