Heavy handed Nazi propaganda
25 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

When this film was released the Nazis and the Soviets were at war rather than allies.So clearly the Nazis had to justify their invasion of Russia by showing how cruel,and deceitful and merciless were the Russians.the problem with this film is that it is rather ponderous and at 97 minutes far too long to hold peoples attention.As is usual in this type of film the Russians,or however is the enemy is shown in the most unflattering light possible and the Nazis in an extremely heroic light.The bombing of Rotterdam being shown as a heroic venture to free the captives of the Russians rather than the reality which was the bombing and invasion of a hitherto neutral country.Such things as truth never bothered the Nazis.
