One of my first purchases from your company and after several plays, I expect to make many more.
These vintage recordings sound crisp and clear and pack quite a wallop.The accompanying booklet is full of fascinating background information and lots of rare photos.
I love what you're doing. Please continue to release more of this music.

There have been a number of CDs released in the past that contain Third Reich period marches but not many that have concentrated on the 'marschlieder',the songs sung by the Wehrmacht during the 1930s and the war years. This CD represents a variety of composers and performers.
Stunningly re-mastered and painstakingly researched, this presentation eclipses all others in quality of sound and wealth of information. Each of the nineteen tracks is a gem and Brandenburg Historica have, yet again, not... [disappointed].
A marvellous CD!
