I am was born in Europe, all my relatives fought in this war. I made a video glorifying their battle field talent but not the nazi idelogical beliefes. Please don't get this lock, ENJOY!

I will remove the water mark once I do final editing later this week. I want to make it more fast past and cut out the slow parts.

Pretty sure that wasn't rammstein I've heard all their songs... *unless you meant their songs fit perfectly in german videos in general

And 1:13 with the tank, I believe that was part of a propaganda film, they were just showing off germany's new tanks, before the Blitz.

Not bad, where did you get the footage from?

By the way, whose song is playing in the background.

I have to ask you then:

1. Why the multiple showings of the Nazi swastika on flags and maps?

2. Why the parade in front on a leader giving the Nazi salute?

Both are symbolic of Nazi beliefs and glorification.

1. On maps at least, most documentary footage that shows the German invasion shows a Swastika since it was the symbol of the Nazi party. It isn't entirely correct of course given how the Wehrmacht was mostly doing the attacking and had their own symbol but that's the way the footage was made I guess.

2. When addressing the Wehrmacht most of the time officers when talking to soldiers would give the Hitler salute. The regular Wehrmacht salute was largely banned by the Nazi's so not many people used it outside of their "circle" for obvious reasons. There were a few cases where the regular salute would do but in the clip you referenced, probably not.

Nazi salute - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It didn't have that negative a meaning at the time, infact in the United States up until the end of World War 2 the "Hitler salute" would be given by school children in front of the American flag. It was banned after that since all these fascist groups world wide decided to use it at once so the meaning changed, but a group called the Daughters of Revolution I think have been trying to bring it back. I'd link you to an article about it but I seem to have forgotten what it was called. The salute itself is called the "Roman Salute" although most people think it was created in France during the Renaissance.
