Music for german victory parade

Post by Ekrabappel » 23 Nov 2021 09:04

Hi all,

I have been chasing for some years a march tune played during footage of the Wehrmacht marching through a crowded street. The footage was shown on "The World at War" Ep 5 Barbarossa. Episode is on Dailymotion
https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3p7ao6 13.30min-14.20min.

Any ideas? I assume it is german.

Thanks

Hello and :welcome:

It's "Defiliermarsch" by Carl Faust.

Playing in the clip is this part: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBp3kRx8yTc&t=56s

Thanks Ivan, was looking for that march - as its featured in a Geburtstagsparade 1939 recording I have - for some time now.

Hi Ivan,

Thanks for the warm welcome. Yes, that is indeed the song I was chasing. Interesting comments on the clip. I had no idea it had been used in so many media releases at the time. Then again, it's a damn awesome tune. I still reckon the German marches are among the best in the world. USA are pretty good too. There are a few more tunes that I may need ID in the future.
Vielen dank
David

All nations have 'good' marches . It is the nature of the beast.
