Clausewitz was never immobilized by

the shortage of fuel for his tanks.

The Partisans have been executed.

At least Arndt has found

an antidote to boredom.

Becker, quick.

Take these men to the barracks.

Yes, sir. Come on. Let's go.


A bus.

Lieutenant Heisse has captured a bus.

It probably will run out of fuel.

- Who are they?

- An American symphony orchestra.

You took soldiers to

the front to escort prisoners?

- I thought that as they're not...

- You thought?

Keep to your orders!

Demand that we be

released immediately. Tell him!

Do you understand?

With the others.

Take him with the others. Quickly!

Hurry! Form a group with the others!

Are you sleeping?

More quickly.

All together!

It's not true, Alfred.

This is a nightmare.

Prepare arms!

Load arms!

Stop this! Do you hear me!

Stop this!

- Aim!

- You can't do this!

Coronel Arndt!

Have you gone mad?

Bring this man to me.

It's Lionel Evans!

Who is Lionel Evens?

Come with me.

Hold on.

I want my people released

immediately. You cannot do this.

- I want your commanding officer.

- Silence!

I'm not a prisoner.

I'm not a combatant.

- I remind you the Geneva Convention.

- Coronel Arndt!

I should not like Mr. Evens

shot before we've been introduced.

General Schiller,

may I present Mr. Lionel Evans.

I am Captain Klingerman,

a devoted admirer, Mr. Evans.

I possess a collection of your

recordings I believe to be definitive.

I once had the privilege of attending

one of your piano recitals. In Vienna.

Your only appearance there.

You were superb.

- I was rotten.

- No, you were superb.

I mean, technically.

But you were very young then,

at the time.


- My men are waiting.

- Why don't you join them?

Fresh air! Essential to health.

Your body is a temple.
