Robert Küssel's "Soldaten - Kameraden" (not sure if this one was a "real Nazi", there was something there about the Führer...)
It is a soldiers' song from a 1936 movie of the same name - and one of the most popular soldiers' songs of the Third Reich. It was particularly popularised at the beginning of WWII, when it was also called "Ausmarschlied 1939" (The Marching-Out Song of 1939) and "Der Führer hat gerufen" (The Führer Called). It was kind of an "opening song" of WWII.

The song begins with: "What our fathers created was wasted so soon. The Führer called, we follow man after man..."

The "Ausmarschlied 1939" title, from the songbook "Der Führer hat gerufen - Kriegslieder des deutschen Volkes" (The Führer Called - War Songs of the German People), part 1, 1939 (the songbook title was also inspired by a line from "Soldaten - Kameraden")

The "Der Führer hat gerufen" title, from an "Electrola" record, 1939 (in this recording, the opening lines were reversed; they sang: "The Führer called, we follow man after man. What our fathers created was wasted so soon...")

The original title, accompanied by a photo of German soldiers marching in France, from a wartime songcard

Thanks Ivan.

Pretty strong bass drum, quite in contrast with a "soft" introduction in French! :D

Cheers, Greg.

(Notice that right when they start playing the part "What our fathers created was wasted so soon. The Führer called, we follow man after man...", the camera zooms-out, filming a huge French flag in the background :D)

Here without singing, by Harmonie Batterie Municipale de Calais...

Something funny, is that before the begining of the song, the woman is saying "...Une autre marche allemande de Robert Küssel" (An other german march by Robert Küssel) and then, the person who is behind the camera says "Une marche allemande, plutôt nazie ! ha ha !" (A german march, rather Nazi ! ha ha !)

I don't know if the guy knew that it was a Nazi song, or that he was saying that just for the joke. :D

Best regards,
Teppeny

What a big surprise, interesting transcription.
This piece was also performed in the movie "Hans Westmar"
and in L. Riefenstahls 2. partyday - film "Triumph of the Will"

I was rather shocked to hear the "NSKK-Fanfarenmarsch Nr. 9" played live by the Chilean Carabiniers.
A bit newer performance (Nov. 2017); skip to 1:00 (and ignore the incorrect YT title)
