The enemy has broken through
along a wide front. They’ve taken Zossen to the south
and are advancing to Stahnsdorf. They’re on the northern outskirts
between Frohnau and Pankow. They’ve reached Lichtenberg,
Mahlsdorf and Karlshorst to the east. Steiner’s assault will
bring it under control. Mein Führer… Steiner… Steiner couldn’t mobilise
enough men. He wasn’t able
to carry out his assault. The following men will stay here:
Keitel, Jodl, Krebs and Burgdorf. That was an order! Steiner’s assault was an order! Who do you think you are to
dare disobey an order that I give? So this is what it has come to! The military, everybody, has been lying to me.
Even the SS! Our Generals are just a bunch
of contemptible, disloyal cowards. I can’t permit you
to insult the soldiers… They are cowards,
traitors and failures! Mein Führer, this is outrageous! Our Generals are the scum
of the German people! Not a shred of honor! They call themselves Generals!
Years at a military academy just to learn how to hold
a knife and fork! For years, the military
has hindered my plans! They’ve put every kind of obstacle
in my way! What I should have done is liquidate all the high ranking
officers, as Stalin did! I never attended an academy, and yet I have conquered Europe
all by myself. Traitors. I’ve been betrayed and deceived
from the very beginning! What a monstrous betrayal
of the German people. But all those traitors will pay. They’ll pay with their own blood. They shall drown in their own blood! Gerda, please calm yourself. My orders have fallen of deaf ears. Under these circumstances,
I am no longer able to lead… It’s over. The war is lost. But, gentlemen, if you believe
I am going to leave Berlin, you are seriously mistaken.
I’d rather blow my brains out. Do whatever you like.
