This is a 1962 record production with sounds and narration that remains largely relevant for GI's who served in Deutschland during all of the last half of the 20th century. With the original 33 1/3 LP recording supplied to us by 3rd Armored Div. Cold War veteran David L. Smith (3/36 Inf), here is Germany as American servicemen heard it and lived it! Here is the brassy beer hall music, the crashing "Prost!" of 1,000 voices from Munich's Hofbrauhaus, the ever-changing sounds of modern Germany and the never-changing sounds of its bells, beer halls, cuckoo clocks and cobblestone-clattering streets. Here is the Germany that GI s wrote home about: Land of Heninger, Hofbrau, and a thousand other beers; homeland of Gemeutlichkeit, lederhosen and schnitzel a la holstein; and slangland of "mox nix!", "clicks", and "You bedder belief it, GI!" And we did not forget the rigors of combat training, Grafenwoehr, alerts, kaserne life, and more. So, sit back, GI, and pour yourself a tall stein of beer and enjoy!
