    CU Map showing part of Russia - Stalingrad is mentioned.

    VS of surrender of small Russian town to high ranking German officers. Among them is Alfred Rosenberg and Luftwaffe General Erhard Milch. Crowd of people in local national costume give half-hearted Nazi salutes. Shots of Nazi meeting local people - lots of forced smiles.

    CU animated map showing German lines moving around Stalingrad.

    Captured German Footage. Some shots scratched and dupey.

    The Spanish troops are volunteers, men and officers who were 'fighting against communism' in their own division along with Axis Forces.
