    The most intense 2.5 minutes of combat footage I have seen. Some graphic images so if you are sensitive you might not want to look.

    LiveLeak.com - Frontline combat footage

    My favorite is 00:48 with the man driving a burning willys jeep trying to get out of what appears to be heavy artillery.

    That clip of the burning jeep is a really famous well used bit of film, the clip of the Panther being knocked out is i think in Aachen or Cologne, i can't remember which.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    You're right, Gunny...the scene w/the Panther is indeed Cologne, and took place right next to the famous Cathedral...
    I liked the Pacific Theater footage as well...hosing a path through the jungle with the 30cal Browning, wow!

    Here's an interesting linky to the Cologne cathedral square tank battle describing exactly what occured from some of those involved. Interesting reading.

    Great footage!

    For some reason, WWII combat footage seems to be very rare.

    Like the thread title says; Incredible footage! The fear and horror felt on any side at the front-lines back then must have been out of this world intense...
