I did not make this but it's well done. It depicts the rise of Germany and events that eventually led to her downfall (not in
fully chronical order).

P.S. I recommend that you don't watch the actual clips from the movie if you are planning to see the whole thing.

Well, this thread is not really about the movie, but the most excellent opening (the movie is great, though).

I might have just missed it but the song the kids were singing, what is it called? I've heard it before.

Well, if you've seen the film, you'd agree that the selfish Prussian ex-aristocrat officer deserved to die.

Good, although I do maintain that Prussia is a German territory, as with all of Pomerania.

Fine. The introduction to the film is good, and the film itself holds high esteem among me and my friends - for a somewhat original take on war, by taking the German point of view on the Eastern Front rather than partisan activities in Greece and/or D-Day landings and/or aerial combat over Germany and/or the UK.

It really does show what certain people gain from war, to digress, like how Schindler profits greatly from the war but then is a Nazi in denial at the end of the day.
