Allies Open Final Drive On Germany (1945)

Things to watch for:

1) The four soldiers with top hats. For a few seconds, it feels like you’re right there.

2) The cheerful tone of the “A city dies!” segment, in which we see the city of Pforzheim – along with 17 000 civilians –  “being literally wiped out before your eyes.  Explosions and fires are sucking the oxygen out of the air.  Nothing can live in this inferno!”

3) The sudden switch from violence for real to violence for fun in the last segment.
