YouTube - Panther Combat Footage

Someone says that a footless German leaves the tank. I can not seem to see it. Would someone point that out please? Thanks.

You can wrap the video into the thread:

I can only see the tank crew jumping out of the tank @ 0:11. I can't tell if one of them is missing a foot or not. Pretty good quality for a WW2 video too.

No, that doesn't happen in this particular clip, which IIRC is in Cologne right next to the cathedral. IIRC the tank as hit by an M-26, and I have heard one of the crew members say that he witnessed two or three of the Panther crewmen escape but the others remained inside.

What you refer to is related to this clip however. There is a longer version of this taken by the same cameraman earlier in the same sequence. A Sherman is hit, and the obviously wounded American tank commander tumbles out of the turret to the rear deck and then toward the ground. I can't remember if the clip ever showed him hitting the ground. I couldn't tell anything particular about his wounds, but a witness to the event was later interviewed and said the tanker had his foot blown off and did indeed die immediately after it was filmed.

As it just so happens, the the two clips are in this compilation. Starting at about 1:48 is the Sherman clip which lasts less than 5 seconds, and then immediately following is the Panther clip. YouTube - World War 2 Video Sad

I really dont "Like" that video, its a carnage, all the crew where killed, the first one, cut his legs off when the lethal 90mm Pershing Cannon penetrated over the armor... very sad.

Also, a film about an French Soldier Running and get shot whit an unknown weapon, it was banned from youtube

Welcome to what war really is like...:rolleyes: Half the purpose of these videos is to give people a very very very very small look at what war is.
