Germans in color are always fun. They seem so happy, boy are they in for a shock.

getting more of a Polish feel for the landscape, albeit occupied by either the Soviets or Nazis

Nikolassee is a suburb of Berlin. Pretty damn close to Poland.

I like the screen doors on the armored car. Probably upgraded later in the war.

They were an anti-grenade countermeasure, so I doubt it.

/The screen doors on the early U-Boats, however.....

We're encircling and capturing a half million Russians a week, the war will be over way before winter sets in.

What Nazi flag is that in the beginning?

That one guy smoking a cigarette is clearly Corporal Newkirk in a German uniform, no doubt on a secret mission for Colonel Hogan.

It's the German one.

Looks like a cheap Chinese screen print to me. Don't ever get your Wehrmacht hardware at Walmart. No quality at all.

German battle flag. Like the Confederate battle flag you see on pickup trunk bumpers (which was not the Confederate states national flag).

I wonder what percentage of those men lived to see the end of the war. Not many, if they went to the eastern front, I would imagine. What a waste. The only good thing is they didn't win.

somemoron: I wonder what percentage of those men lived to see the end of the war.


Not many. People still don't get that the war in Europe was the eastern front, the western front was a sideshow after 1940 until it finally became a sideshow they couldn't ignore. The Germans lost on the order of 2 million dead, wounded, and prisoner and 3 million sick or wounded on the eastern front and they sent 4.5 million in in the invasion, do the math.

Meanwhile they lost 500,000 dead or POW on the western front and another 400,000 or so sick or wounded. Roughly a 4 or 5 to 1 ratio of casualties for the Germans on the eastern front vs western.

You know who else liked advancing Panzer's into Russ...oh wait.

It looks like the first 7 minutes were filmed in Germany.

While I'm glad that the war ended the way it did, it kills me to see those kids being sent to their almost certain (and brutal) deaths. Fortunately, we've learned from history, right?

They did Nazi what was coming until it was too late.

I have a friend who's mother was a nurse in the German Army in WWII. She said that the German nation pretty much denuded itself of the best, brightest, and strongest of its young men by sending them all into Russia. To her dying day, she was convinced that their nation was almost permanently weakened by Hitler's stupid plans.

I'd tend to agree. If we unnaturally selected the top 30% of IQ's and then marched them off a cliff, what would happen to our country?

I'm pretty sure the same thing happened to the southern US because of the Civil War.

Some of those states still aren't right.

You'd have a country full of unhealthy, willfully stupid people who watch things like Transformer movies and the Jersey Shore and have no idea what's going on in the world.

oh, wait

What about taking the top 30% of IQs, marching them to the top of a cliff and telling them to take a great leap forward?

The only mistake in that war was that we left twenty million of the square headed basterds alive.
