Text: The Operations Room. Easy Company Assaults the Crossroads in Holland, 1944 – Animated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uz_K-1eyS4&list=PLErys4h2oiuz4USvrpIkhW6meDLGe1H7g&index=3
Some elements of this text to consider:
- This series of Youtube videos by The Operations Room consists of “battle map animations of the most important battles and events in history.” https://www.youtube.com/c/TheOperationsRoom/about
- The voiceover is very matter of fact. Even hugely pivotal and dramatic events are narrated in a quite flat, unaffected manner.
- The animations are very simplistic. The individual actions are not shown in a realistic manner although the story as a whole is based on a factual retelling of the events.
- In this particular video a top-down perspective is used which makes the movement of individuals and groups easy to follow.
