The story about Riphagen, a cunning Dutch traitor during WW2 who helped Nazi round up Jews, stealing their treasures for himself. He destroyed Resistance groups, making many who pursued justice after the war look like fools.

Untersharführer Ludwig Herckel (Leone Frisa), is a devoted and patriotic soldier of the elite 1st SS Panzer Division Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler. As the action begins, we follow a small group of experienced infantry soldiers in combat against Soviet forces. An explosion knocks Herschel unconscious and he wanders the woods in a daze. He is met by another soldier who happens to be from his same town back in Germany. This solder tells Herschel, in confidence, he worries about his wife as she is Jewish. When Herschel goes on leave back to Germany, he looks up the wife and finds the Gestapo attempting to arrest her. When she runs, a Gestapo officer shoots and kills her. Herschel is troubled by this act, but returns to his outfit anyway. Now posted to the western front, Herschel witnesses the decline of the army group, loss of comrades in arms, and multiple acts of war crimes in the handling of POW's for both sides.Written by

Both the panther tank and tiger tank are reproductions based off of the Russian T-55 tank. As are most German armor used in films. Although the upper hull work is done very well and could fool most, the chassis used is too short and not wide enough for both tanks. See more »

I am sorry, but this was rubbish. The opening narrative pretty much sums up this discursive, poorly written, sloppy movie. It is, however, reenactor porn. It is the kind of poorly made movie amateurs post on Youtube, akin to fan films. Morally, it is bankrupt: it gives tacit endorsement for the actions of the SS and tries to argue it away as simply the tumult of war. Battle scenes look ridiculous because they plainly could not afford blank rounds... the explosions that did seem real seem to be more like fireworks than actual explosive devices. Netflix is currently playing it... I've got no idea why. It's terrible. Straight out.
