Hey! Again that Jerry with the reversed cap, with the peak on his neck on minute 02:00 Sehr moderne!
Last time we saw that footage it was called Seelow Heights.
If I remember correctly Za said it could be anywhere.
ok sorry for not checking!! I'll check it in future!
Isn't that from the Nazi's in colour or something similar, I believe it gets shown quite often on the History channel
Seelow Heights was part of the defense of the Oder.
Must have made "Final Victory" seem a million miles away and more unlikely with every passing day.
Felt like armageddon I imagine.
Indeed it would have Kharkov. I havent read too many accounts from soldiers who were in the first line but many accounts for rear echelon troops talk of the sky being lit up and the most deafening sounds. In the eastern suburbs of Berlin, lights in houses began to swa of their own accord and pictures fell off walls. Seems like it made quite a din.
Paul took this video of that area yesterday.
Thought this be a good thread to post it on .
Great bit of footage from Paul and from the Polish side too.
