    About

    After the downfall of the Third Reich, on the 5:th of May 1945 a strange battle took place in the Tyrolean mountains in Itter, Austria. Soldiers of the Wehrmacht and the US Army joined forces and fought together against the SS to save the lives of prisoners being held in the castle of Itter. Under the command of American Captain John C Lee and German Major Josef Gangl the castle was defended by less than 30 German and American soldiers together with the French former prisoners of the castle. Together, and with a little help from their Sherman tank "Besotten Jenny" who was placed at the main entrance they managed to hold the 100-150 men strong Waffen SS unit at bay until they were relieved by the Allies.

    Lyrics

    5th of May V Day is just around the the corner
    1945 the Führer reign is at its end

    Jenny at the gates as the SS open fire
    There's no time to waste the final battle has begun

    After the downfall a castle besieged
    Facing the Nazis awaiting relief
    Gangl and Lee and their men set the prisoners free

    And it's the end of the line of the final journey
    Enemies leaving the past
    And it's American troops and the German army
    Joining together at last

    One last fight it's the death throes of the 3:rd Reich
    Justice shall be done the final battle remains

    Ammo is running low they're depleting their machine guns
    Every bullet counts until surrender is announced

    After the downfall a castle relieved
    Defeating the Nazis who held them besieged
    Gangl and Lee and their men set the prisoners free

    And it's the end of the line of the final journey
    Enemies leaving the past
    And it's American troops and the German army
    Joining together at last

    From the foot of the Alps to the shores of the sea
    From the foot of the Alps to the shores of the sea
    From the home of the brave from the land of the free
    From the foot of the Alps to the shores of the sea

    And it's the end of the line of the final journey
    Enemies leaving the past
    And it's American troops and the German army
    Joining together at last [X2]
