A question for Ivan....
...based on his encyclopaedic knowledge of this music 8-)
...in your opinion, which commercially available CD offers the best wartime recording of the vocal rendition of "Panzerlied / Ob's stürmt oder schneit..."
...I'm not one for downloading songs from the 'www'...I prefer to collect 'proper' CD's....and I'm dismayed by the fact that I don't actually have this song on any of the CD's that I do own...(hangs head in disbelief !).... :oops:
Hello and thanks very much for the compliments :) :oops:

I would recommend Guido Grosch's version from Brandenburg Historica's CD "Großdeutschland"
It isn't really my favourite version, but it is better than the well known recording sung by Heyn-Quartett.

As the version for the film "Battle of the Bulge" in 1965? (I think in particular of the version or soldier strikes the ground with their shoe)
Period recordings of the song exist as well.

Cheers,
Ivan

Ah, excellent! The 1st & 3rd must be the earlier ones (do you have their dates?)

Cheers,

Hi Ivan...

..the funny thing about these cards is that they never seem have printing dates on them...you either have to rely on the 'cancellation' date stamped onto the card, or if the song is a 'campaign' song, then that can at least date the card to a particular year...

I can see why you'd think the 1st and 3rd cards are earlier ones, simply because it uses the Pzkpfw 1...

...in fact, the 3rd card is the only one that has been postally used, and that was in 1942 !

Another rare one, eh? :wink: Well, we can only see that the 2nd songcard is from 1941 (at least the drawing is).

Hi Ivan...

..not sure if it's really rare, more that it just takes a bit of time to track down :wink:

...I can see why you'd think of 1941 as a date for that particular card, based on the 'Afrika' style drawing and the Pzkpfw III.....(and of course the artists name and date appears in the picture also!)

...here we have armoured cars pretending to be Panzers!...

A few years back when I was a frequenter of the feldgrau site, I came across an mp3 link of the acoustic version of the Panzerlied song. I did a search on feldgrau and on AHF and nothing came up. Would anybody happen to have it or a link?

Wim,

I have been looking for the musical score for Panzerlied and found this site. Thank you very much for posting it.

I have recently heard the German marching song "Panzerlied" out of curiosity and it is amazing and I want to write out a score for it but its hard to find even a good piano piece (that's free) or at least the vocals is all I need and I'll fill in the blanks according to recordings (pun?)

Do you mean something like this:

Any information about Flemisch in German service (Waffen SS, OT, NSKK, Kriegsmarine, DRK, ...) during WWII is welcome.
