Field Marshal Walther von Brauchitsch, Field Marshal Erwin Rommel and a contingent of officers inspect coastal fortifications in occupied France (?). The men walk across a beach toward a large buliding. The camera pans across a line of barricades. Large guns are shown in their emplacements.
German soldiers in action: firing guns from camouflaged positions, explosions in the distance. Closer shots of the men using field telephones and consulting maps. Low aerial shot of a group of soldiers; they move out across a field. More shooting. Soldiers advancing through heavy cover and across a river. Men loading guns; a brief shot of a group of officers, one of whom looks through a field telescope.
