    Camera Operator: Götz Hirt-Reger
    Götz Hirt-Reger was trained in Berlin as a German film reporter and reported to the Eastern Front as a Nazi soldier. He covered the German advance on Moscow, the battles of Orel, the tank battle of Kursk, the Kuban bridgehead and at the front of the Dnieper. He filmed the German defense of Romania on the Black Sea, joined a raiding patrol against Soviet lines, and witnessed battle in Kischinow and Jassy, where some 250,000 Germans died or fell into Russian captivity. Hirt-Reger filmed the entire war period with two cameras and partly in color. With one camera, he filmed the official recordings or "Deutsche Wochenschau"; with the other, private 16mm Kodak camera, he recorded life of German soldiers in war. See also
