Poland Date:1939, November Duration:43 sec Sound:NO SOUND
German troops seen casually advancing during their invasion of Poland in World War 2. View inside Hitler's traveling railroad Headquarters, known as the Leader's Special Train (Führersonderzug), where General Franz Halder, Chief of the German General Staff, is seen briefing Hitler. Other senior officers join the planning discussions. Brief view of German soldiers in the communications center of the Sonderzug, preparing orders and sending and receiving messages. Hitler is seen stepping from his Pullman car (Number 10206 in which his personal military assistants and a valet were also quartered). He is followed by military officers. A large cadre of German officers greet him and his entourage at the station. They all walk across several railroad tracks to a parked 1939 Mercedes G4 car, into which Hitler climbs. He renders a half-Nazi salute as they drive away. Glimpse of the vehicle steering wheel.
(Note: In 1940, Hitler's train was re-named "Amerika", after a Belgian village, where his regiment found temporary respite on November 1, 1914, following the battle of Geluveld, during World War I. Later, the Sonderzug was finally re-named "Brandenburg.")
