I tried to imitate Wargame's Campaign cutscenes by making one myself. Don't expect it to be realistic :p

Nice, I like it. Maybe you can display the text in a telex way that would add some authenticity or Yellow subtitle as in older movies. The real problem is that your subtitle are too "modern". But that's the only problem I have.

Well, if you use Windows Movie Maker, expect to get real troubles with texts in WMM. There are some options I really want, but having these is impossible unless you got the Vista version. The Vista one got plugins, while the other don't.
I was searching one which is the best suited for, but I haven't.

Anyway, as I said I love your little video.

After Effects is love, After Effects is life (after Photoshop).

The english could be better. Still, captures the vibe pretty well I'd say.

Cool, I like it. (little nitpick - it should be Czechoslovakia and not Czech Republic in that time)

Nicely done, someone watched Guido Knopp's documentation. :mrgreen:
Some minor critics though.

Most've been mentioned above:

The text could be different, it's really too modern. Unfortunately I have no idea which sort could be used instead. :?

The grammar is a bit buggy but nothing too bad.

Some pictures don't fit the timeframe you put this. For example you're showing M1 Abrams tanks in 1977 when this is a 1980 tank.

One thing I realized was the language. Not that it was bad but IMO things like "The NVA's airforce is too weak to be used against NATO tanks". It sounds like it's written by a relatively young person not an author or Idk, I'd rather use some technical terms or something like "The NVA's army, weakend by months of fighting, cannot crush West-German defence lines. After reorganizing a US-led taskforce begins a counterattack near Fulda. In a desperate cry for help the Soviets intervene on behalf of the GDR - putting NATO in a situation of total numerical disadvantage." or something like this.
Or instead of "The FRG introduces a new tank called Leopard 2 which can be a real threat for the GDRs T-55s" I'd rather use something like "East Germanys outdated equipment can barely take care of NATO's latest weaponry" or so.

Other than that it's well done. :)
