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.
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.]
I realize the music from 0m31s through 1m47s in Die Deutsche Wochenschau Nr. 736 (below) sounds like the same one from the 6m-7m mark of Triumph des Willens, but is it originally from Wagner's Meistersinger von Nürnberg?

Those are some variations on the melody of "Wach' auf, du deutsches Land" from "Der Sieg des Glaubens" movie, which can be indeed also heard in "Triumph des Willens" (Herbert Windt composed music for both movies).
