Nürnberg 1935 – it is the re-emergence of the Wehrmacht. Dawn is breaking. Men are waking, washing, shaving, donning their uniforms. Hot porridge is bubbling in huge kettles for breakfast. The sun is breaking over the trees, behind the row upon row of tents where the men have bivouacked. The men fall in and the massive parade begins. The sun glints off the polished buttons, off the well cleaned rifles.
Infantry, cavalry, cannon, armor & air forces begin an exercise; mock combat on the fields as dignitaries including Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, Hermann Göring, Josef Goebbels and Rudolf Hess look on with great appreciation. Cannon and field pieces are quickly run into place; sights are set and guns blaze.
Planes fill the skies – the world’s finest and most modern combat aircraft of their day. The 88’s go into action, along with 37mm and 20mm automatic AA guns.
This film showcases the rapidly emerging Wehrmacht. There is always action going on in this film, coupled with stirring German folk music and powerful march music.
