Feuertaufe/Baptism of Fire (1940) information

Post by Jarlath » 11 Apr 2023 15:16


I am trying to find some information about Hans Bertram's film, Feuertaufe: Der Film vom Einsatz unserer Luftwaffe in Polen (Baptism of Fire: Film from Operations by our Air Force in Poland). Is anyone aware of any books or information which documents its social impact in the Third Reich at the time of the release? The sort of information I'd like to know is how popular it was relative to the other films of its time (e.g. how much did it take at the box office). It doesn't seem to be that well documented, for example, it doesn't have a German or English wikipedia page.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards,
