Much better than Tommy Trinder and George Formby and the rest of the stuff our poor sods had to put up with. Better songs , better uniforms and kit, good job Hitler was doing such a good job for the Allies.
Class. I actually got to watch Downfall over Christmas (it's still on Sky+).
Bit of a cross-thread here. For those who didn't know, Downfall is shown from the perspective of the young woman who, in the clip above, says, "Thank God he isn't booked with EasyJet." At the end, we see her escaping the bunker dressed in uniform and Stahlhelm. Belongs in the "Women you fancy but shouldn't" thread.
After I did me Linguist German course, I was forever being asked, "How do I ask for another pint?" or to translate a chat-up line. Since it was Civil Service Linguist German (Army), there were words like Hubschrauber, Beobachtungsstelle, Aufklärungspanzer, but there was no formal training in sentences guaranteed to get her knickers off.
In order not to impact too heavily on my own drinking time, the only German sentence I ever taught anyone was this:
Ich möchte Ihre Tochter bitte in die Scheune mitnehmen.
