Importance of Soldatenlieder in the Second World War

‘Soldatenlieder’ is a German word, which on literal translation means soldier songs, meaning songs which were composed with the German military in mind. During the Second World War when Hitler decided to send a battalion of troops to the African countries of Libya and Tunisia, he labeled them aptly as Afrika Korps. Although their commander moved on, this wing of the German army survived till the end almost the end of the war when it had to surrender to the Allied Forces in May 1943. Having spent a lot of time in distant lands, the soldiers were particularly homesick and hence needed to hear German military songs in order to derive inspiration.

During that phase in the first half of the 20th century, CDs’ had not yet been discovered and hence the only source of Soldatenlieder for the soldiers was the radio. This genre comprised of various types of music like German military songs, German soldier songs, German band music and marching music. Since much of it was directed by the Third Reich it proclaimed the greatness of Germany and infused a sense of patriotism amongst its soldiers. But the Afrika Korps had other choices as well, namely the song ‘Lili Marleen’ sung by Lale Andersen and the tracks performed by Zarah Leander, the great and well loved Ufa performer.

Because the first commander of Afrika Korps, Erwin Rommel, went on to command the Panzer division as well, Panzerlied occupied a special place in the troops’ heart. Apart from this composition, other songs comprising the Soldatenlieder were ‘In Junkers Kneipe’, ‘Ganz einsam und verlassen’, ‘Soll ich Dir mein Liebchen nennen’ and ‘Wir lagen vor Madagaskar’. A unique feature which classifies these tracks distinctly as Nazi music is the liberal use of a specific bugle – this instrument was used by the buglers of Waffen-SS during marches on the parade ground as also while advancing in combat.

It was on Adolf Hitler’s personal insistence that the Afrika Korps and the Panzer Africa division were established and owing to the harsh conditions in which the troops were expected to operate, songs were composed especially for them. This collection, referred to as ‘Afrika Korps Marching songs’ features tracks like Panzer rollen in Afrika vor and Unser Rommel both of which have their own significance. While the first is meant as a German soldier song describing the harsh conditions and inspiring the troops, the second is an ode to their commander, Erwin Rommel. Any compilation of Third Reich Soldatenlieder is considered as being incomplete without the inclusion of these tracks.

The Third Reich under the leadership of Adolf Hitler had ambitious plans to further its political boundaries as also its ideologies. To achieve this, they organized two instruments – a combat unit named Wehrmacht and a cultural compilation named Soldatenlieder and ensured that both of them complemented each other. Music is a universal art which never fails to touch souls and move mountains and hence was an ideal weapon with which to enable the Afrika Korps functioning far away to accomplish what the Fuhrer desired of them.

Out of all the noteworthy names in the list of Soldatenlieder, it is that of Arthur Schulte, the stabshornist of Waffen-SS which stands out as his compositions were mostly used as German marching songs. Other popular names were ‘Charlie and his Orchestra’ led by Karl Schwedler, Mimi Thoma and Wilhelm Streinz all of whom sang odes about the regime and its policies. Much of the music as also speeches of the Fuhrer which were heard by the Afrika Korps on radio have now been compiled into CDs’ and can be purchased at authorized and reputed websites.

One of the enduring gifts of the Nazi regime to the world has been a compilation of music named
Soldatenlieder
meaning soldier songs composed under the rules set by the Third Reich. While today the world enjoys listening to them on CDs', for the
Afrika Korps
operating in the hot deserts of Namibia, radio was the only source.
