Thanks a lot! If it is original music for Feuertaufe I assume the composer is Norbert Schultze. Do you know if the melody has a name?


Yeah, it was by Norbert Schultze. I don't think it has a name, however.

Does the music from the 8:00 mark through the end (15:55) belong to the same soundtrack? All of it sound familiar.

The first part 8:38-10:28 is also used at around the 11:00 mark of the video "UFA-Tonwoche Nr.451_1939 - Hitlers 50. Geburtstag" (before the flyover of Luftwaffe aircraft,which was followed by Lockmarsch and Regimentsgruß). The second part 10:29-12:29 is also used in other Wochenschau (Nrs. 530, 596, 642, 722). The last part (12:30-15:55) is associated with the voice-over "...immer neue[r]..." (probably from the Wochenschau associated with the French campaign) in my head, so it must have been used elsewhere, but it's not from the 3. Übung segment of "Olympia - Das Fest der Schönheit (1936)" as I initially thought.

What is/are the name(s) of this/these?

Figured out 12:30-15:55 of above: it's from the opening minutes of Triumph des Willens. It also appeared in Die Deutsche Wochenschau Nrs. 512 and 548, as well as Balkanfeldzug. I'm calling it [an imaginary title removed by moderator, Ivan Ž.]
