yes the topic 'respect to the victims' is a small and ridiculous excuse.
but Wurzeltomte is right, that's kinda the thing Sabaton has success with; it's the pure power metal ideology of epicness, heroism etc. combined with something historical near like WW2 or something and not middle-earth or something.
@ Nordpolar: Mostly I agree with you! It's the same with every Sabaton song even though the hookline of this song is melancholic! But this is part of the ambivalent role of Sabaton! Power Metal definetly has a praising, heroic and in case of Sabaton martial nature.
Sabaton has an interesting focus of trying to understand the perspective of all warriors and all victims and showing what glory there is to be seen in it. They are a war band. It's an interesting objective and I think they come off pretty well in sympathizing with everyone. It's a little weird, but it's interesting. As for Nazis and those they killed, I think they killed far more Aryans from other European countries and the United States in the war than Jews and others held in concentration camps.
