U.S. Troops in Germany, April 1945: Silent, unedited, color film of U.S. military personnel in Germany in April, 1945, shot by U.S. Army film crews. Tracking shots along tree-lined road through German countryside, we pass a young man who looks like he is giving a Nazi salute, then two women walking along carrying a homemade white flag over their heads, next passing a group of German civilian men standing roadside holding a large white flag, a dog with them runs out of way of vehicle. GV German military prisoners including SS officer sitting on ground against a fence. Various shots of horse drawn wagons with contents spilled and lying about a village street, it appears a scuffle has occurred, American soldiers at the scene. GV American GI running through clearing in woods, looks like he is carrying a paper, possibly a courier. GV same clearing as tank fires and a stream of American soldiers run past with guns. LSs German countryside with smoke and trees burning. LS pans of countryside, following bomber flying overhead. Brief night LS of ground fire burning seen through leafless branches of trees.
